Just yesterday, Tropical storm Erika flooded the beautiful land of Dominica causing extensive damage and unfortunate fatalities. According to CNN Weather, the majority of devastation came from almost 12 hours of heavy rainfall. The flooding has cause blocked roadways, tons of power outages and washed away home in many small communities who will likely find it difficult to recover. The nature of Dominica’s mountainous and remote terrain has made search and rescue efforts difficult. Sadly, there have been at least 20 confirmed deaths. Surrounding islands and countries are currently working to provide rescue assistance.
