    I call foul, i live here and was out in the hurricane at the beach having a look, no signs or notices or talk of being prosecuted if step foot in the ocean, its the usual scam. if they want or care to catch law breakers, they can find that on the street every minute. This is exactly what it looks like.

    Don't swim in the water, but you can drive after consuming 20 beers and stopping at the intersection to pee pee in the street.

    What did you and the others agreeing with f12 think when they received the notice from COE that the beaches and rivers were closed? also was reported on all the news channels.

    I know here is SD that the police were monitoring the Malecon while it was closed.

    I can see telling them to get out of the water, But arresting them is un-called for. They should have done like they did in Florida. If you go out in the storm you do so at your own peril, don't call for help.

    I agree that arresting them might be a bit much, but if they where told not to before hand then that another thing. If they had drowned would their family blame them or Dominican paradise?!?

    Well, we don't know if they were residents or tourists. Although we spend many months in DR each year, we don't subscribe to COE notices, which I assume are in Spanish, which not all Americans would comprehend anyway. Common sense would dictate to most people...stay out of the water. I just think it's a little overboard to arrest them. Full disclosure: Mr. AE disagrees with me.

    I don't subscribe to COE notices either, they just show up on my phone! Orange must send out to all their customers. But their Dominican companion would have known. Agree with Mr. AE.
