Fr. Eddie sent in these notes:
Flooding took place in many areas of the country, destroying crops and roads, and forcing many families to leave their homes, losing much of their belongings.
The people of the Dominican Republic reacted strongly against the corruption scandal of the construction company Odebrecht that have increased the cost of building roads, bridges, etc up to 20% to pay bribes to politicians and other officials.
