Possible rain in next days

Foreseen path of Danny as a tropical depressionAfter months of little to no rainfall the water reserves in the Dominican Republic are critically low. So low, that on 28 July it was reported that Santo Domingo’s fresh water reservoir only had 35 days of water left. In Santiago, the second biggest city on the island, reserves still had enough water for 90 days. It’s not so strange then that many people are hoping that tropical storm Danny will bring some much wanted rain. Danny, which is currently in between Guadeloupe and Dominica continues to move westward but has lost most of its bite in the last 48 hours.  

From hurricane to tropical depression
A few days ago, Danny was still a hurricane, which reached force category three at one stage. Now it has been downgraded to a tropical depression. It is expected to pass by the shores of Puerto Rico on Tuesday with the National Weather Service in Puerto Rico issuing warnings of floods especially in urban areas, and some gusty wind conditions.


Dominican Republic
The tropical depression will continue to deteriorate into a post-tropical depression as it nears the Dominican South coast in the next days. It is expected to bring rain especially to the south coast of the island although weather forecasts also foresee some rain on the north coast, especially on Thursday.

Despite the forecast rain, the Dominican Weather Services, Oficina Nacional de Meteorología (ONAMET) continue to urge people to use water rationally.
