Haiti, Dominican Republic: Tropical Storm Noel

“During the last few days, Tropical Storm Noel…caused severe damage in Haiti and the Dominican Republic”: Dying in Haiti reports.


  • Greg Cavanagh

    We have friends staying in Punta Cana Dominican Republic, wondering how they are doing after the storm. Does anyone know if this area was badly hit..

    @Greg Cavanagh: sadly yes, the south-east was one of the area that was more affected. But if they are staying in a hotel do not worry they are save.
    hope your friends are ok.

  • Was wondering how the marinas in Luperon survived. Have a couple of friends on a sailboat under mooring there and haven’t heard anything.
