Downpours swell rivers, flash flood warnings issued
Santo Domingo.- The Emergency Operations Center (COE) on Tuesday issued flash flooding and landslide warnings from swelled rivers and creeks for several provinces, from downpours which began early Tuesday.
The OCE said 21 towns have been cut off in the central and northeastern regions, including the three provinces of the Yuna river’s entire lower basin.
In a statement the COE said the rain swelled several rivers which damaged a bridge and washed out a road that links the towns.
The National Weather Office (Onamet) forecasts downpours and thunderstorms during the next few hours, mostly over the southwest, the Central Mountains and some parts of the border zone.
