DOMINICA: TROPICAL STORM ERIKA – BARONESS PATRICIA INTERNATIONAL CO-ORDINATOR

The Prime Minister of Dominica, the Honourable Roosevelt Skerrit, has today appointed Dominican, the Right Honourable Baroness Patricia Scotland as the international coordinator of the Dominica Relief Effort.

Dominica has been severely affected by the passage of Tropical Storm Erika with confirmed deaths of twenty (20) people and hundreds of persons left homeless. The immediate relief effort has been made more difficult by the fact that there are still communities that cannot be reached three (3) days after the passage of “Erika”.

Additionally, the main airport, the Douglas-Charles Airport, has been severely damaged posing further difficulty with access to and from the island.

Prime Minister Skerrit believes that the prestige Baroness Scotland commands internationally, and, her vast range of high level contacts, will be brought to bear to the benefit of Dominicans in this time of extreme need. Her efforts will work in parallel with that of the National Reconstruction Advisory Committee.

Baroness Scotland has already begun the task of mobilizing international support.
