Heavy rains last week again caused floods
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, it rained in Sosúa and surrounding area. Every now and then there were true downpours that lasted for hours. In between, interspersed with a non-stop drizzle. Also this time, at the well-known crossroads and low-lying streets in Sosúa the water stood more than knee high. It was impossible for traffic to pass here. It always happens at the same places in El Batey. At the liquor store Super Super and near the city hall the water stood 2 feet high.
Also at the intersection at the Hotel Europa and the junction to the Casino Playa Chiquita the water stood high and it was impossible for the motoconchos to drive through. Near the now closed disco High Caribbean a sewer system has been built. However, every time again it shows that it is not sufficient. The problem is that Sosúa is situated down some hills, and that the water of these hills flows straight into Sosúa. So more sewer systems should be constructed to solve the problem of flooding.
