Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


August 21, 2007

Dear Friends of Dominica:

I would like to personally inform you about the current status of Dominica following the passing of Hurricane Dean this last Friday morning.

It is with great pleasure that I can attest that the island has suffered relatively minimal impact to its tourism infrastructure from the storm. Following a thorough assessment conducted over the weekend and earlier today, our tourism product remains largely intact with most hotels, various attractions and some tour and dive operators open to welcome guests. Both our Melville Hall and Canefield airports are open with airlines having resumed their normal schedules. Most roads are passable and no tourist evacuations were necessary. Power and running water have been restored to most locations following shut down of these services in preparation for the storm while clean-up of debris, downed trees and other such damages is well underway.

If you are considering a visit to Dominica this fall, we are ready to welcome you in authentic Dominican style.

Thank you.

Yvor Nassief
Minister of Tourism for Dominica

Well we have not been able to contact anyone living up the hill in Calibishie, only people living at the bay. I just tried again (22 Aug 4PM) and no luck.
