Dominican Republic rains kill at least 21, displace thousands

Over 13,000 people in the Caribbean country had to move to more secure areas after torrential rains flooded homes, caused power outages, and damaged bridges and parts of roads, Reuters reported citing the Emergency Operations Center (COE) on Sunday afternoon.

A total of 21 people have lost their lives, the COE added.

The storm’s victims include nine people who died on Saturday after rains caused the wall of a highway tunnel to collapse onto their cars, the National Police said.

Over 2,500 had to be rescued by protection agencies, and over 2,600 homes had been impacted by the storm, the COE said.
