If you will be in the Dominican Republic for vacation within the next couple of weeks, be advised:
Evacuations and rains continue. Heavy rains have led to the evacuation of 44 more people, leaving parts of Barahona and Monte Plata provinces cut off from the other communities. Because of the risk of more rains due to a storm front over Haiti, the Emergency Operations Center (COE) has maintained a red alert for San Cristobal, Monsenor Noel, Ocoa, Azua, Peravia, Duarte, Barahona, La Vega, Sanchez Ramirez and La Altagracia with yellow alerts for all remaining provinces.
