Nagua community to be relocated

A community of around 52 zinc-roofed houses that were seriously damaged by the wind gusts and surf surge as Hurricane Irma cruised by the north coast of the Dominican Republic will be rebuilt in another area of Nagua municipality. The houses were located in Boba in the La Gorda municipality in Nagua, María Trinidad Sanchez province. The houses stood right beside the Atlantic Ocean coast and were known to be in a vulnerable area.

The announcement was made by Minister of Defense Ruben Paulino Sem who toured the area shortly after the passing of Hurricane Irma with the director of the Police Ney Aldrin Bautista and the director of the Social Plan of the Presidency Iris Guaba. The senator of Maria Trinidad Sanchez said the community would be relocated. They were part of a commission appointed by President Danilo Medina to oversee the government’s response to the damage from Irma reported in Nagua, Samaná, Dajabón and Puerto Plata.

The Ministry of Public Works announced that a brigade of 5,000 civil servants worked quickly to restore passage of roads affected by falling trees and power lines nationwide. Minister of Public Works said that recovery efforts would continue nationwide through Saturday, 16 September 2017, or as needed.
