Santo Domingo.- The Presidency on Friday declared purchases and contracts for goods, works and services by government agencies, a national emergency to use in the rescue efforts, and reconstruction of infrastructure damage by Hurricane Sandy’s downpours.

The invocation of Law 340-06 allows the Armed Forces, Public Works, Administrative, Tourism and Agriculture ministries, the dams and canals agency (INDRHI), the Presidency’s Social Plan, the Economic Cafeterias, the Housing Institute (INVI), the Presidential Provincial Commission and the State Works Engineers Supervisors Office to cut red tape during the next 30 days.

Presidency spokesman Roberto Rodriguez made the announcement, and said those agencies must submit their expenses to the General Comptroller and the Accounts Chamber within 15 days.

He said the government will spare no expense to assist those people living in the provinces affected by the storm.

NAVY BOAT OFF TO THE SW WITH AID

The Government is sending food, mattresses, mosquito nets and blankets by ship to the southwestern areas which cannot reached by land.

Thus far 16,600 ready to eat meals (139,200 pounds), 1,550 mattresses, 750 mosquito nets and 1,700 sets of blankets have been sent.

A Navy boat laden with the mattresses, blankets, mosquito nets and rations of raw food set sail to Barahona and Independencia provinces Friday morning, to distribute the aid among families in the hard hit communities of Boca Cachón and Jimani, among others.

"Great astonishment by great crack in the new Baitoa Bridge."

BY: JEAN CARLOS COLLADO

The residents of the Borough of Baitoa after so many years longing for the construction of the bridge which connects Baitoa with Sabana Iglesia are now have much fear that the structure that was built just months ago is beginning to present problems in the asphalt layer and the support beams. Today Thursday we realized the disaster that aws made the engineers that built the structure.

The drainage off the bridge falls on the columns of and the beams which over time can cause problems.

Sandy Slams Bahamas; 40 Dead in Caribbean

AP Oct 26, 2012, 5:28 PM EDT

NASSAU, Bahamas -- Sandy raged through the Bahamas early Friday after leaving 40 people dead across the Caribbean, following a path that could see it blend with a winter storm and reach the U.S. East Coast as a super-storm next week.

The number of dead in Haiti from Hurricane Sandy has reached 26, with 14 others dead elsewhere in the region. Officials at a morgue in western Haiti say if the rain from the storm continues, they will expect to see more deaths.

Sandy caused havoc in Cuba on Thursday, killing at least 11 people in eastern Santiago and Guantanamo provinces as its howling winds and rain toppled houses and ripped off roofs. Authorities said it was Cuba's deadliest storm since July 2005, when Category 5 Hurricane Dennis killed 16 people and caused $2.4 billion in damage."
