Most of Santo Domingo was not affected by floods. That's why most Capitaleños knew about the flooding after seeing it in the news/radio or hearsay, not that they saw it first.
?? There was tons of flooding in Santo Domingo..
Piantini
Urbanizacion Fernandez
Herrera
And the highest recorded rainfall was in arroyo Hondo viejo

They've already cleaned up the section where the wall collapsed. Wasting no time. I bet they put the same braces across the top that are on the other sections.


It always surprises me how this country manages to clean things up almost immediately where someone has been killed or where there's been a serious accident, but everything else seems to take forever. You'd almost believe that they were trying to cover up the evidence of negligence wouldn't you?

As I mentioned in a previous post in this thread, it's a shame the engineers don't have regular infrastructure audits and inspection. We only see them after the disasters and tragedies. This is ancient technology folks, checking for structural integrity issues. Don't need to be Musk to do this right.

All of them walking around saying "no es mi culpa" whilst having a good old rummage around in their boxer shorts.

That's on a main artery where everybody passes through, including all the politicians. Of course it will bd fixed very fast.

In the mean time, the Cangrejo Bridge on the other side of the world...
