NASA warns of a high level of disaster risk in the Dominican Republic

Catastrophes could occur if a natural disaster risk mitigation system is not developed, said researcher Ricardo Quiroga Observations made by NASA determined that the Dominican Republic is at high risk of future disasters, due to its location and the current land planning model. Another series of major disasters are coming because we have not developed a land management model, said NASA disaster risk management researcher and coordinator Ricardo Quiroga. At the same time, he explained, during a conference given at the Technological Institute of Santo Domingo (INTEC), the Dominican Republic is in a geographically critical position. Its location is one of the areas where there is a significant environmental impact from hurricanes, and this makes it necessary to have a mitigation system against natural disaster risks in place.
