Dominican Republic, brace for rain! 

GFS models continue to show accumulations, I believe, around 20 to 30 mm in some regions, specially in the center of our Homeland.

Dominicans are just returning from a wet holiday weekend, it is the Día Internacional del Trabajo (Workers Day), some were lucky to have periods of sun in the north, Punta Cana was not lucky though, reports coming from Aeropuerto Internacional de Punta Cana told wind gusts up to 50 km/h, some small planes flipped over, and heavy urban floods also were reported. Yesterday it was Samaná who had the most rain (the province in the nort-east that has the 'hand shape').

Right now, it is raining and lightning in Distrito Nacional and greater Santo Domingo, and this morning we just had beautiful skies and warm temperatures, but oh well, in the tropics, even on the most beautiful day, it rains, what a blessing.

Authorities are telling that rains with reduce frequency, but it is May and this is the month where it rains most.

Stay tuned...

Good Evening.

Just wanted to post quickly these pictures I found in social media regarding the recent events from past few days. I can speak from my experience in Distrito Nacional that it has been raining with short recess from Friday, it's been worst in southwest coast. Rain might succeed within the next day or two, but for the moment, damage is being done to the infrastructure across some provinces.
