The town was seriously affected in 2010 by flooding, which destroyed crops and homes, but today the community of 600 residents is an example of resilience and sustainable adaptation to climate change.

Varios hombres de origen haitiano esperan su turno en el proceso de captura de datos en el Ministerio de Interior y Policía el 17 de junio en Santo Domingo, a unas horas de vencerse el proceso de inscripción al Plan de Regularización de Extranjeros. Quienes no se hayan acogido al Plan, serán repatriados. EFE/Orlando Barría
