The powerful storm Laura hit the Dominican Republic, the element took victims and caused damage.

The powerful Laura storm, located in the Caribbean, hit the Dominican Republic with strong winds and torrential rains. The element took three victims and left a path of destruction on its way. Among those killed were a woman and her 7-year-old son, who were buried under tons of rubble after their home suddenly collapsed. The third victim was trapped under a fallen tree. At least nine people were reported killed in a disaster in neighboring Haiti.

Due to the large-scale floods caused by the floods, dozens of people trapped in the water trap had to be evacuated as a matter of urgency. Volunteers in rubber boats also took part in the action. Nearly a million households in the country are without electricity due to broken transmission wires by gusts of wind. Thousands are housed in temporary shelters. The Isabella River came out of its bed and flooded vast areas. Destroyed houses were reported. The area of ​​the Azua Compostela, which is located on the road of the element, was most seriously damaged. There the water on the streets of the settlements is over a meter.

Laura also evacuated Cuba's lower eastern coastal areas. A warning has been issued for high tidal waves and torrential rains. Forecasters expect the storm to intensify into a Category 2 or Category 3 hurricane as it hits the U.S. coast.

Another element creates chaos in the region. Tropical Storm Marco, which was hit by a hurricane with winds of more than 120 kilometers per hour, is moving north between the west coast of Cuba and the Yucatan Canal in the southeastern Gulf of Mexico. The simultaneous movement of two storms in one region is a rare phenomenon, say weather forecasters, who issued warnings of bad weather in the region at least until the end of the week.
