Hurrican Richard hit Belize

Hurricane Richard hit Belize's Caribbean coast late Sunday, an estimated 10,000 people have taken refuge. "The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Richard's top winds were 90 mph (150 kph) -- making it a Category 1 hurricane -- when it made landfall about 20 miles (35 kms) south-southwest of Belize City, whose neighborhoods are full of wooden, tin-roof homes that are very vulnerable to winds," said the Star Tribune. "A hurricane warning remains in effect for Belize, while a hurricane watch and tropical storm warnings are still in effect for the east coast of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula from Punta Gruesa to Chetumal" said the Chicago Tribune.
