Dominicans lose everything in St. Martin

Dominicans who had been living on the eastern Caribbean island of St. Martin for 10, 15 and even 30 years have been returning to the Dominican Republic over the last two days, brought back by the Pawa Dominicana airline. They confirmed that they have lost everything due to Hurricane Irma.

Octavio Orlando, master builder and shopkeeper said that his 30 years work on the island has been reduced to nothing, he was left with only the clothes on his back. He gave thanks to Pawa Dominicana for sending planes to rescue them. Pawa Dominicana has evacuated 295 Dominicans in two flights to St. Martin.

He said that there was nothing left in St. Martin, no electricity, no water, no food and no medicines and that the island was completely destroyed.
