Tropical Storm Isaac triggers nationwide alert
SANTO DOMINGO.- The Emergency Operations Center (COE) issued a nationwide alert on Tropical Storm Isaac, which is expected to bring downpours in the country Thursday night.
The Meteorology Office forecasts overcast skies and scattered showers for the entire country Friday, while COE director Juan Manuel Mendez urged citizens to keep abreast of the storm’s possible impact, through official bulletins.
He said first responders coordinate actions with the Armed Forces Ministry and other agencies to mitigate the effects of potential landslides the rains could unleash.
Mendez provided the information in a National Palace press conference yesterday, accompanied by Onamet director Gloria Ceballos, and Civil Defense director Luis Luna Paulino.
T.S. Isaac formed in the Eastern Caribbean yesterday.
