Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens: Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) Hurricane Matthew

U.S. Embassy Santo Domingo alerts U.S. citizens in the Dominican Republic that a tropical storm watch associated with Hurricane Matthew is in effect for the Dominican Republic. Heavy rainfall is expected in parts of the Dominican Republic over the next few days. The combination of a dangerous storm surge along the coast with large and destructive waves could raise water levels by as much as three feet. Gusty winds, heavy rains, and possible flash floods and mudslides are expected to occur over portions of the Dominican Republic.
