Summary

This document provides a snapshot of the current situation in the area of Dominica’s capital Roseau, following Hurricane Maria which made landfall on the island on 19 September 2017. Before hurricane Maria, a list had been provided by the Dominican government to redirect displaced individuals to 143 shelter sites. Out of these pre-determined sites, a total of 14 shelter sites, all situated in the Roseau area, were visited and assessed on 27 and 28 September 2017. While three were closed due to damages, the remaining 11 shelters were functioning and hosting a total of 407 people. All of the shelters are collective centers that receive private donations, mainly churches, community centers and schools.
