Flooding in Puerto Plata

Heavy rains again have affected normalcy in Puerto Plata. Ten communities were flooded and road communication is difficult. These are Ranchito de los Peralta, Caonao, Palmarito and Angostura affected by overflows of the Bajabonito river in the Maimon district. Also Los Felix de Bajabonico, Palma Sola, Damajagua, Los Perez Saballo and La Piragua in Imbert were flooded.

Flooding also momentarily affected the airline counters at the Puerto Plata International Airport, and the low visibility caused flight delays. Yolanda Mañán, spokeswoman for the airport administration, nevertheless, said no flights were cancelled.

Two parents and a child are reported missing after their vehicle was dragged by flooding waters when they attempted to cross the Domínguez River.
