Hurricane Slams Belize, Yucatan

October 02, 2000|From Times Wire Reports

Coastal residents of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula and northeastern Belize fled their homes as the dangerous core of Hurricane Keith came ashore. Heavy rain and flooding throughout Central America caused at least two deaths and forced hundreds of people to be evacuated. The slow-moving storm lost strength as it drifted inland, with winds dropping to 115 mph from a high of 135 mph. It was expected to further weaken today.
