Santo Domingo.- Six provinces remain on alert due to the presence of a trough and a tropical wave located over the country, while the National Meteorological Office (Onamet) reported that it monitors a disturbance located to the east of the Lesser Antilles, which has a potential 50% chance of becoming a depression.
The provinces under alert are Hato Mayor, Monte Plata, Juan Sánchez Ramírez, Santiago de los Caballeros, Duarte and María Trinidad Sánchez, according to the report.
The rains caused by both phenomena will persist over these demarcations and other Dominican populations, and the cloudiness is expected to decrease starting this Tuesday when the tropical wave moves away from the Dominican soil.
In another order, Meteorology reported that it is monitoring a disturbance located to the east of the Antilles Archipelago, which is expected to pass north of the Leeward Islands, on its way through the Atlantic Ocean.
This system is moving west-northeast at a speed of ten miles per hour (16 kilometers) and could reach tropical depression status this week.
Onamet urged the population to remain attentive to the official information that this organization will issue about said system and the hurricane season in the Atlantic, which ends on November 30 and in which only three named storms have formed.
