  • The infobox has Month-Day date format, but the rest of the article uses Day-Month. Can you change it so it's the same?
  • "The 1931 Belize hurricane was the deadliest hurricane in the history of Belize, killing 2,500 people." - this could be stronger and more attention grabbing. In September 1931, a hurricane struck Belize and killed an estimated 2,500 people, the deadliest on record in the country. Only, Belize wasn't a country until 1982, so I'm not sure about the best wording.
  • Go with my wording (which I changed slightly), if that's OK. I found another source backing it up - [1] - even if that might not be the most reliable to cite. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 18:39, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
  • "by which time it began to rapidly intensify. The tropical cyclone quickly attained Category 4 hurricane intensity." - could you merge these?
  • "Moving across the Yucatán Peninsula, the tropical cyclone weakened, and continued to weaken when it moved across the Bay of Campeche. " - can you remove the double "weaken"s
  • "and approximately 2,500 fatalities in British Honduras." - already mentioned in the lead
  • "In this region the system became sufficiently organised to be classified as a tropical depression at 18:00 UTC that same day
  • What am I supposed to do here?--12george1 (talk) 03:15, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
  • "As the storm remained north-north-westbound across the Caribbean" - it never went NNW though
  • "At 18:00 UTC on 8 September, the tropical storm attained hurricane intensity." - that's an estimate though
  • "The storm strengthened further before reaching its peak intensity with as a Category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 135 mph (215 km/h) at 1800 UTC." - weird wording
  • "The entire city was inundated with 5 ft (1.5 m)." - seems unfinished

Pretty good overall. ♫ Hurricanehink (talk) 02:26, 15 November 2016 (UTC)

  • Thanks for the review. I actually forgot about this :P --12george1 (talk) 05:03, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
  • Any update on this? I don't think this should be failed, given GC's effort a month after you left this by the wayside. YE Pacific Hurricane 08:13, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
