Comments: It's being raining all afternoon, some times with greater intensity than other. A couple of thunders as well. Dominican power grid is essentially vulnerable with these type of events, but at least in my area we haven't get outages, not yet. So a made a quick run on social media and news and noted some important information: Ozama River is flooding the settlements on its shores. There has been reports of urban floods in some cities and towns. Here are some accumulatives in some provinces: Pedernales: 422 mm La Vega: 222 mm San Pedro de Macorís: 117 mm Santo Domingo Metro Area: 94 mm Report of a tornado in Oviedo, Pedernales, destroyed 12 houses. -- Guillermo A.
