- Waters are receding slowly in all areas except along the Rio Hondo. In the Crooked Tree area, the causeway is under 5 feet of water and it is expected to remain under water for around three months. The population in the Crooked tree area is the main concern in terms of relief and supplies, as these populations have no access and need immediate supplies of food and, in particular, water.
