Santo Domingo.– Due to possible floods and mudslides the Emergency Operations Center (COE) increased to 19 the number of provinces under alert, 11 of which are on yellow alert and eight on green.

The measure was taken after the National Meteorology Office (Onamet) issued its bulletin at 7:00 pm Friday, stating that the current weather conditions will continue during the next 48 hours due to the combined effects of two low pressure systems.
