Hurricane Richard hit a remote stretch of coastal Belize, knocking out power and blowing the roofs off some homes.

Torrential rainfall associated with the storm triggered extensive flooding in the capital of Belize City.

Richard was a Category-1 storm when it hit the Central American nation, then quickly weakened to a tropical storm.

It then brought mainly rain and gales to parts of neighboring Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and Bay of Campeche before eventually dissipating over the southern Gulf of Mexico.
