The following report was provided by the World Federation of Consuls:
Good morning. Allow me to report that the Dominican Republic did not sustain any significant, reported, damage as a consequence of the unfortunate earthquake that hit our neighboring Republic of Haiti yesterday at around 6pm.
We were at a Consular Corp meeting and felt the tremors but there was no cause for undue alarm here in Santo Domingo. Cautionary measures were taken in the evening and up to today but the reports are that No damage was sustained.
The Consular Corp will offer its assistance and solidarity to the coordinating authorities,
Please use this information as you deem it usefull for our colleagues in the FICAC,
All the best
