The National Meteorological Office (Onamet) keeps nine provinces under meteorological alert due to the effects of a trough.

The demarcations on alert are Puerto Plata, Monseñor Nouel, Dajabón, Sánchez Ramírez, Santiago, Duarte, Santiago Rodríguez, Valverde and La Vega, where flash floods, flooding of rivers, streams and ravines are expected, as well as landslides.

Onamet reported that the country is under the effects of a trough that maintains favorable conditions for downpours, accompanied by thunderstorms and isolated wind gusts in provinces of the northeast, southeast (including Greater Santo Domingo), southwest, mountain range Central, Cibao Valley and border area.

Today the national territory will also continue under the effects of a very humid air mass and the trough associated with a quasi-stationary frontal system in the north of the country.

"These rains will decrease in the early hours of the night, but in the early morning there will be some downpours towards the coastal areas of the Atlantic and the Caribbean associated with a tropical wave that will be approaching the country," explained Meteorology.
