    The people in the United States are being told that it is close to the Dominican Republic, as usual they are confused and do not know that there are two Dominica’s in the Caribbean, they are getting this information from the Christian Science Monitor and other weather sources, absolute pathetic. This hurts the Dominica tourist industry when even the US weather channels and post office do not know.
