Tropical Storm Franklin approaches the Dominican Republic

Through the social network X (formerly Twitter), the director of the National Meteorological Office (Onamet), Gloria Ceballos, confirmed that the first contact of the cyclone with Dominican soil was through Los Cocos, in Barahona, one of the provinces in Red alert for heavy rainfall.

The Emergency Operations Center (COE) had decreed the alert for the 32 provinces of the Caribbean country, of which 25 are on red alert and seven on yellow.

For his part, the official of the National Meteorological Office, Saddam Font Frías, warned that Franklin will leave "severe and important floods" and called on the population not to neglect themselves.

It is forecast that, on its way north, the hydrometeorological phenomenon will leave accumulated rainfall of 300 millimeters or more in some regions on the island of Hispaniola, shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

Media outlets report that it is already raining heavily in Santo Domingo (Dominican capital), where floods are even beginning to be perceived.

In total, more than 2,700 shelters have been set up in the Dominican Republic and the day has been declared non-working. Likewise, the emergency committees of the different organizations and institutions are meeting and taking measures in the face of the scourge of the tropical storm.
