Authorities prohibit swimming in beaches of Puerto Plata due to strong waves

According to the National Meteorology Office’s (Onamet) bulletin, the waves would be abnormal on the Atlantic coast between 4 and 6 feet high, as well as dangerous marine currents on the coasts of Puerto Plata and observing the conditions on the ground, the Puerto Plata Prevention, Mitigation, and Response Committee recommended the placement of a red flag.

Bathing is prohibited in the various beach resorts along the Atlantic coast of the Province of Puerto Plata as a preventive measure.

Furthermore, Onamet advised operators of fragile, small, and medium-sized vessels on the Atlantic coast to stay in port due to high winds and waves.
