Central region under severe flash flood warning

Santo Domingo.- The Emergency Operations Center (COE) issued severe flash flood warnings for central La Vega and Monseñor Noel provinces and maintains alerts for Hermanas Mirabal and Duarte, as downpours from a trough drench that part of the national territory since early Wednesday.

It said mandatory evacuations were ordered yesterday in La Vega, Monseñor Noel and Hermanas Mirabal provinces while the heavy rains of the last hours are expected to continue.

COE said downpours affect mostly the northern and northeast regions, with at least 5,500 people evacuated 1,393 houses damaged and three completely destroyed.
