    Here in Jarabacoa there has been rain every afternoon, and then again at night for more a week. Some are not heavy rainfalls burt some are torrential downpours for several hours. I guess it is a hit and miss on what areas are getting rain.

    What a coincidence, me and my good buddy WW were just
    discussing this same problem earlier today while the servants
    were washing our helicopters

    And we'll get more rain into the foreseeable future. The northwest isn't so lucky.

    But at least our streams are filling and it'll all go down toward Presa Tavares and give the people in Santiago some relief...then head to the northwest.

    Both Azua and Barahona got rain last night and are supposed to have rain at times over the next few days. When it rains it pours; Jarabacoa had some flood last night in low area. Rivers were roaring.

    Here is Jarabacoa we've had 1-2" every day for almost two weeks. I am taking water *out* of the pool.

    In the mountains, even worse. And the ground is no longer perking.

    So a lot of this water has to be getting downstream by now.

    Driving back and forth from Santiago to the capital I was checking out the rivers/streams and they were roaring rapids. Hopefully we get past the drought.
    One problem I read last year was the one of the reservoirs could only hold a fraction of the original volume due to the fact that it had not been dredged for too long. If that still is the case it will continue to cause problems and water shortages every time a dry spell comes to the country.
