Tropical Storm Emily - Aug 2011

Past disaster

Disaster description

As Tropical Storm Emily approached the Island of La Hispaniola with sustained winds of 85 km/h, the National Societies in Haiti and the Dominican Republic prepared themselves to monitor the situation and respond in a comprehensive way. Since both the Dominican Republic and Haiti are confronting a cholera outbreak, there is a general concern that the flooding produced by Tropical Storm Emily could exacerbate the situation.
