Unfortunately with work schedules it is the only time we can come down as a family. We were supposed to leave on Sunday so we will already have a shortened vacation.

Any advice, info would be helpful for myself and family.

Thanks.
The Palladium is closed right now. Last word is that they "should" open in a week, maybe a little more than a week. Best to get in touch with your agent ASAP.

Hey all, hope all faired well........

I would like to inquire about our condo If I may...... It's the Hacienda Del Guadaloupe, on the corner of 15 Ave and 14 Calle. Accross from Hacienda Del Carmen, and kitty-corner from a school. Does it still have a roof? Are the domes still there? Should I assume the Palapas on our top floor are gone? Any info would be much help...... Thanks.

Okay- so...on a sad topic: news here in Germany report a German scuba instructor (32) died previous to the storm when making his house safe.
The article says he has been living in Yucatan for quite a while.
Of course I am sitting here wondering wether I knew him........

Chetumal, Q.R. Severos daños a la agricultura y a los servicios de electricidad, agua potable y teléfonos, así como el derrumbe de un centenar de vivienda y cortes en las carreteras, aunque sin víctimas directas, dejó a su paso por la península de Yucatán el huracán Emily, antes de perder fuerza al pasar de categoría dos a uno anoche, y adentrarse al golfo de México en su trayectoria hacia Tamaulipas.

La coordinadora general del Protección Civil de la Secretaría de Gobernación, Carmen Segura, aseguró que fue un saldo "blanco" e indicó que en la península se evacuaron 50 mil personas, y 25 mil aún permanecían en albergues.

En Quintana Roo, la caída de ciento de árboles y decenas de postes cortó el suministro de electricidad y agua potable, que tardarán días en reestablecerse, especialmente en las zonas más dañadas, como Cozumel, Tulum, Playa del Carmen e Isla Mujeres, donde también se afectó el transporte porque las gasolineras no podían operar, dijo el superintendente de la CFE, Arturo Escorza.

En Isla Mujeres, por donde el huracán ingresó en la madrugada del lunes, se cortó el servicio telefónico convencional, y Cancún, el más importante centro turístico mexicano del Caribe, amaneció sin electricidad.



Evaluación

Una evaluación preliminar indicó que en Quintana Roo se perdieron al menos 20 mil hectáreas de cultivos de maíz, 200 hectáreas de frutales y 18 mil 300 colmenas, en los municipios de Felipe Carrillo Puerto y Lázaro Cárdenas, y en Cozumel, Benito Juárez y Solidaridad se dañaron unas tres mil viviendas.

En una reunión de evaluación, encabezada en Benito Juárez por el presidente Vicente Fox Quesada, las autoridades estimaron en 178 millones de pesos los daños ocasionados por el ciclón, además de las pérdidas por la desocupación de 50 por ciento de los hoteles de la Rivera Maya.

El secretario de Comunicaciones, Pedro Cerisola, indicó que en la red carretera federal de la región sólo sufrieron daños las estatales Punta Alen y la Perimetral, aunque la mayoría de las carreteras de la península quedaron obstruidas por escombros y árboles caídos.

Éstas fueron desbloqueadas desde ayer lunes. En Cancún se restableció 40 por ciento del servicio eléctrico; 4 mil turistas que estaban en refugios regresaron a sus hoteles; se reanudó el cruce de barcos entre Isla Mujeres y Puerto Juárez y fue reabierto desde las nueve de la mañana el aeropuerto internacional.

Eduardo Paniagua, presidente de la Asociación Mexicana de Agencias de Viajes, anunció que comenzaron a contactar a sus clientes para preparar su salida de Cancún, donde permanecían más de 20 mil turistas.



Pérdidas en Yucatán

En Yucatán, en su desplazamiento de poco más de tres horas, sin tocar la ciudad de Mérida, el huracán causó daños en 40 mil hectáreas de maíz y hortalizas, inundaciones en varios puertos, incomunicación carretera, corte en el suministro eléctrico, escasez de agua y el derrumbe de por lo menos 100 viviendas en cinco de los 50 municipios dañados, según reporte previo de la Secretaria de Desarrollo Social del estado.

Los municipios yucatecos más dañados fueron Chemax, Calotmul, Temozón, Tizimín y Espita, donde se desplomaron techos y viviendas de paja, adobe, láminas de cartón y madera.



Concluye alerta en Campeche

En Campeche se levantó la alerta que llevó a desplazar a mil 313 personas a los albergues ante la posibilidad de que Emily entrara a ese territorio, en donde hubo escasas lluvias, sin daños.

El sábado, dos pilotos murieron al caer un helicóptero que desalojaba personal de las plataformas de Pemex frente a las costas de Campeche y el domingo fue encontrado un hombre ahogado en la unidad pesquera de Lerma.

En Chiapas, donde hay alerta permanente por las fuertes lluvias generadas por Emily, dos mujeres murieron cuando un vehículo que las transportaba intentó cruzar un arroyo crecido en una comunidad de Tapachula
