Summary: 

Dominican Republic November 2007

During the night of Monday October 29th, tropical Storm "Noel" hit the southern shore of the Dominican Republic leaving a path of destruction, and flooding extensive areas across the country. As rivers broke their banks damaging roads and infrastructure, thousands of people had no choice but to take refuge on the roofs of their flooded homes and wait for help to arrive.
