aircraft '''Silver Creek''' is a village in the Toledo District of Belize. According to the 2000 census, Silver Creek had a population of 1,326 people. There is also a stream named ''Silver Creek'' at this same location. Near the village of Silver Creek is an ancient Maya civilization site. Nearby there is a larger Maya site from at least as early as 700 AD, Lubaantun. C.Michael Hogan, ''Lubaantun'', 2007, The Megalithic Portal, editor: A. Burnham Fatalities 40 direct Areas Much of Central America, Belize, Mexico Hurricane season 2000 Atlantic hurricane season '''Hurricane Keith''' caused extensive damage in Central America, especially in Mexico and Belize. The fifteenth tropical cyclone, eleventh named storm, and seventh hurricane of the 2000 Atlantic hurricane season, Keith developed as a tropical depression from a tropical wave in the western Caribbean Sea on September 28. The depression gradually strengthened, and became Tropical Storm Keith on the following day. As the storm tracked westward, it continued to intensify and was upgraded to a hurricane on September 30. Shortly thereafter, Keith began to rapidly deepen (Rapid deepening), and peaked as a Category 4 hurricane less than 24 hours later. Keith then began to meander erratically offshore of Belize, which significantly weakened the storm due to land interaction. By late on October 2, Keith made landfall in Ambergris Caye, Belize as a minimal hurricane. It weakened quickly weakened to a tropical storm, before another landfall occurred near Belize City early on the following day. While moving inland over the Yucatán Peninsula, Keith weakened further, and was downgraded to a tropical depression before emerging into the Gulf of Mexico on October 4. Once in the Gulf of Mexico, Keith began to re-strengthen and was upgraded to a tropical storm later that day, and a hurricane on the following day. By late on October 5, Keith made its third and final landfall near Tampico, Tamaulipas, Mexico as a moderately strong Category 1 hurricane. The storm quickly weakened inland and dissipated as a tropical cyclone by 24 hours after landfall. Conditions became nearly ideal for Keith's development on September 30, with little to no shear, a well-developed anticyclone over it, and warm Caribbean water temperatures (sea surface temperature) allowing for the storm to strengthen. Keith became a hurricane on September 30, which was followed by rapid intensification to a 140 mph (225 km h) Category 4 (SSHS) hurricane only 18 hours later. As it neared the Belize coast, high pressure blocked further westward progress, leading Keith to execute a small loop just off the coast. Land interaction weakened the hurricane to a strong tropical storm by the time it made its first landfall on October 3. Keith became disorganized over the Yucatán, but reintensified when it reached the Gulf of Mexico on October 4. The storm was able to intensify to a
