Effects of Irma in St. Martin

The Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) is pleased that we in Dominica were spared the catastrophic ravages of Hurricane Irma.

We wish to thank the Meteorological officials, the office of disaster management and Mr. Cecil Shillingford, Disaster Risk Consultant for their professional handling of the situation

The DFP also commends highly public officials, shelter managers and all volunteers who played an active part in preparation for the storm as well as the people of Dominica for heeding the call.

The DFP wishes to caution citizens of Dominica to continue paying close attention to the advisories and to protect themselves, family and property since we are still in the Hurricane season.

The Dominica Freedom Party sympathizes with and urges prayers and support for our neighboring Islands up north, directly affected during the passage of Hurricane Irma.
