Tropical storm Erika: Dominica declares disaster and seeks aid
Flooding and landslides kill at least 20 people and leave more than 50 missing on Caribbean island
Rescue teams worked to reopen roads to remote communities in Dominica on Sunday after tropical storm Erika caused flooding and mudslides that killed at least 20 people and left more than 50 missing on the Caribbean island.
“Access by road to these communities is impossible,” said the prime minister, Roosevelt Skerrit. These towns “are cut off from the rest of the country”.
