Uh, well, I guess I'm glad not to be in Ceiba quite yet!

A message from Marco of

It was reported in today’s edition of La Prensa that
there has been a malfunction in La Ceiba’s sewage
water system, causing a discharge of untreated sewage
water into the city’s streets and beaches. There
exists the possibility that sewage water will also
pose a threat to homes that are connected to the
municipal water system. The malfunction is due to
damaged pumps in the central collection system. The
municipal government has ordered replacement pumps,
which are estimated to cost Lps 350,000 ($18,400). The
city’s environmental health expert, Bernard Martínez
is advising people to avoid swimming in La Ceiba’s
coastal waters.

Oh, my God! Thank goodness we are outside of town and have well water. I haven't been reading the paper lately; it's pretty funny that I'm hearing the news from Minnesota.
