COE places nine provinces on green alert due to incidence of trough

Santo Domingo.- The Emergency Operations Center (COE) places 09 provinces on green alert for possible flooding of rivers, streams and ravines, as well as sudden or urban flooding, due to the combination of a low pressure system and a trough.

The provinces on green alert are La Altagracia, San Pedro de Macorís, San Cristóbal, Hato Mayor, Monte Plata, Peravia, La Romana, El Seibo and Gran Santo Domingo.

The COE took the measure under the bulletin of the National Meteorological Office (Onamet), which predicts that for tonight there are clouds generating weak to moderate precipitation, with possible thunderstorms and gusts of wind, over towns in Greater Santo Domingo, Monte Plata, Duarte, María Trinidad Sánchez, Santiago, Elías Piña, among others.

The agency indicated that this activity will spread to other neighboring towns, thanks to the incidence of the trough, which will remain dominating the weather conditions.
