The answer to J. J.'s question as to whether those aboard Wave Dancer would have been safer ashore is a no-brainer because everyone in Belize who had been evacuated to emergency shelters (which were not leveled) survived. Most government safety agencies advise people to get off boats and into emergency shelters when hurricanes threaten.
