A major flash flooding happened tonight in downtown Las Terrenas covering most of the city center. Unexpected high levels of rain in Cibao valley and especially in Samana late Monday afternoon.

Regional emergency declared in Las Terrenas by city mayor

This reminds me of the flash floodings that collapsed Santo Domingo months ago. Prayers for the ones affected.

Amazing and devastating drone photo of what's left of the city. The river taking of its own:

Was the (new again) “fishing village” affected?

Amazing! It burns down on multiple occasions because of a lack of water. If affected, now it has too much!
