noimageThree days of almost continuous rains have brought flooding to some households in the North. This morning our assessment revealed areas prone to flooding include; Trail Farm, riverside and the surrounding village of San Jose. The rains have prompted officials at the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) to monitor the situation. According to Suleima Celiz, NEMO District Coordinator for Orange Walk, their hurricane district and town plan is ready to be activated should the flooding affect families that would need to evacuate their homes.
