Mayor Agapito Magana Sanchez toured the important areas of the island to verify that the pumps and drains were functioning, with the constant rains that have fallen in recent days. The manager of Aguakan,José Pinzón Sarabia,  accompanied him, who said, "Just yesterday was heaviest rainfall with over 100 millimeters of water, which represents 25% of the total water left by the passage of Wilma over the municipality, during three days, in 2005"  “Tan sólo el día de ayer se dio la mayor precipitación pluvial en más de 100 milímetros de agua, esto representó alrededor del 25% del agua total que dejó el paso del huracán Wilma durante los tres días por el municipio, en el año 2005”.
(Note:   The Meteorological Service of Mexico reported that 64.3 inches of rain (1634 mm) fell in 24 hours at Islas Mujeres during Hurricane Wilma LINK, and early on the morning of Oct. 22nd (2005), rainfall rates exceeded 6 inches (152 millimeters) per hour at the Isla Mujeres station LINK . )
  The Mayor said they are monitoring and pumping the lakes, and cleaning/desilting the drains and running the pumps in flood prone streets like Abasolo, and taking preventative measures at the malecons. Today they will be dredging out the baseball field. This weather is a result of Cold Front #12.

 There are no plans to suspend any crossings by the vehicular ferry, which also provides passenger service, and none of the crossings have been suspended between Isla Mujeres and Puerto Juarez or Grand Harbor. Despite the winds caused by Cold Front #12, service has continued normally, and it is noted that the port was closed to boats under 50 feet in length, which does not include the ferries.

The port remained closed to vessels under 40 feet due to the winds and rains from Cold Front #12, which also has had a negative impact on tourism. The port has been closed to craft under 40 feet since since Friday. The beaches are semi-deserted and the only business with a moderate amount of activity  was the golf cart rental agencies.

Tourism activity declines

Hotel occupancy fell to 40% for the Association of Hotels of Isla Mujeres, due to the weather. The few tourists did not descend from their cars, scooters or golf carts to enjoy the tourist attractions, and some visited restaurants while others stayed inside their hotels.

That is dated yesterday. On FB today they are saying 30% occupancy at the Association of Hotels of IM.

Isla Animals  Daily update: So I wanted to introduce you to all the pups and dogs at the rescue. This is Tony, on the left, and that is his female littermate, with no name yet, on the right. They are Momma Wheat’s pups, brother and sister to Feather. They are such a great litter and so lucky to be able to hang out with their mom all this time. Okay I know I asked for a name for Mona, who turned out to be a female, and you all sent great male names, but I’m asking again for a female name. Sadly our distemper outbreak is still happening and we’ve had so much rain which doesn’t help. But the most excellent news is that with every ones help we’ve almost reached our goal of 1000 vaccinations, I’m overwhelmed. Also Compacion now has children’s sizes for the t-shirts but for just a limited time so if you’re interested have a look. And I want to thank Troy for signing up with a monthly donation bringing us to $1,390.00 in monthly donations, moving toward my birthday wish goal of $2,000.00. Wonderful!
