Airports throughout Jamaica, Mexico and Belize were shut down at press time as Hurricane Dean plowed through the Caribbean and the Yucatan Peninsula. In Jamaica, Kingston Jamaica Airport and Norman Manley International Airport remained closed for more than two days following the storm. Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay was the first to re-open, 24 hours after aviation operations were suspended. Airports throughout Belize and Mexico–including airports in Cozumel, Cancun and Chetumal–were also closed as the eye of the storm passed south of the Estado de Quintana Roo, the Mexican region where Cancun and Chetumal are located.
