EC $13 million raised in Dominica’s relief effort to date
Residents of Petite Savanne get ready to evacuate following Erika.
Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit of Dominica is reporting that his government has received just over EC $13.5 million (US $ 5.0 million) in cash as part of the relief effort in the aftermath of Tropical storm Erika. He made the announcement at a broadcast to the Nation on Monday September 29, 2015.
The amount collected one month after the passage of the storm is a long way from the estimated EC $1.2 billion (Us $ 444.0 million) needed to compensate for the massive losses suffered during the storm.
