Hard work bringing normalcy to Dominica

The roads to the most devastated parts of Dominica are now open.

But that’s where the good news ends.

Men, women and children are now working their fingers to the bone, moving trees, rocks, cars, galvanised sheets, tyres and even parts of bridges in the neighbouring western villages of Coulihaut, Biche and Coulibistre.

There are no tears here.

Dominicans are simply working hard at trying to return their towns to what they looked like before the country was lashed by Tropical Storm Erika on August 27.

Word had come from Government officials and search and rescue teams about the devastation in those areas, but words could never really describe what has happened there.
