Downpours prompt flash flood warnings for east, south regions
Santo Domingo.- The Emergency Operations Center (COE) Tuesday night issued flash flood warnings for Monseñor Noel, San Pedro, Monte Plata, San Cristobal, Sanchez Ramirez and Azua provinces and Greater Santo Domingo.
The alerts came after the National Meteorology Office forecast continuing downpours from a trough over the Windward Passage and a tropical wave south of Puerto Rico, causing higher than normal waves along the Caribbean shore.
Meteorology forecasts increasing rains as of Thursday afternoon, mostly over the East, Southeast, Central and the Southwest.
Meanwhile the COE warns of flash floods, overflowed rivers and streams, as well as mudslides.
