More rain over already drenched soil
Santo Domingo.- A stationary trough over the national territory could bring downpours in areas where the soil is already saturated by the heavy rains of the last few days.
The National Weather Office (Onamet) says Duarte, (Lower Yuna), Puerto Plata, Barahona and Santiago provinces have the most saturated soils, and are also under a flash flooding alert.
“For today, the frontal system will begin to weaken, however, will continue the downpours, being moderate to strong at times with thunderstorms and occasional gusts of wind in much of the national territory, as a consequence of the cloud remnants associated with it, in addition to the local effects of the country.”
Onamet adds that downpours will be more intense over the northeast, southeast, southwest, Central Mountains and border area, while flash flooding warnings were issued for 12 provinces.
