First responders ready to deal with flash flooding emergencies
Santo Domingo.- The Emergency Operations Center (COE) maintains seven provinces under alert after Wednesday afternoon’s downpours from a tropical wave now south of Haiti.
The vast area precipitation has drenched most of the country while forecasts call for more rain during the next few days.
COE director Juan Mendez said flash flood warnings continue for the Monseñor Noel, San Pedro, Monte Plata and San Cristobal provinces.
He said the constant downpours this month have saturated the soil and could last another 48 hours.
Mendez said the COE’s contingency plan to deal with emergencies was put into motion yesterday.
