The MODIS Worldview image acquired from NASA and dated 28/8/2015 with urban overlays is showing the islands of Puerto Rico (Small island to the east) and Hispaniola (Larger island to the west) comprising the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
Torrential rainfall and winds to 85 km/h has been a feature leaving up to 200,000 residents on Puerto Rico without power. According to news sources:-
There are currently 31 missing in the Dominican Republic.
Up to 20 fatalities.
Up to 80% of the population without power.
Heavy rainfall in excess of 350 mm.
The storm is being tracked by CIMSS but it is not clear if the storm will survive the mountains and while a forecast track to the north west is generated on the CIMSS model (Acquired 29/8/15), its movement is not clear. Should the storm survive intact, it may track north west towards Florida or the west coast of the state following landfall across Cuba. If not, the storm could break apart and no longer be a threat.
Notwithstanding this and despite not being a hurricane, the storm has inflicted a significant loss across the Dominican Republic over recent hours.
