Dominicans Clear 100s of Tons of Debris from Santo Domingo Seafront

SANTO DOMINGO Hundreds of tons of debris have been removed from the seafront of Santo Domingo over the past four days as part of the clean-up after the remnants of Tropical Storm Beryl pounded the Dominican Republic with torrential rains.

The refuse was deposited on the coast by the rain-swollen Ozama River, which flows into the Caribbean at Santo Domingo.

As of Monday, workers were still clearing the Santo Domingo pier, removing rubble which may add up to as many as 950 tons by the end of the effort, according to estimates provided by Mayor David Collado.

The crew is comprised of municipal employers, firefighters, the navy and personnel from the Ministry of Public Works, among other private and public entities.
