Dominican Republic Situation Report - 19 August

Hurricane Dean’s rains affected the eastern part of the Dominican Republic and some families in the most at-risk areas were moved in temporary shelters until the storm passed. One death was reported and the ensuing floods caused some economic damage. The National Emergency Commission credits coordination by the country agencies that form the Commission with helping to minimize damage.
