11 provinces under flash flood alert

Santo Domingo.- The Emergency Operations Center (COE) issued alerts to the National District and 10 other provinces on Monday on possible urban and rural flash floods and swelled rivers and ravines as well as landslides.

Alerts have been issued for Santo Domingo, La Vega, San Cristóbal, Monsignor Nouel, Sánchez Ramírez, El Seibo, Monte Plata, Duarte, Hato Mayor and San Pedro de Macorís provinces.

In a statement, the COE says it monitors an area of downpours and thunderstorms associated with a tropical wave in the east-southeast of the Caribbean Sea, with a low probability of becoming a tropical cyclone in the next 48 hours while waiting for it to veer to a west-northwest course.
