Tropical Storm Franklin is expected to bring heavy rainfall to Haiti on the west and the Dominican Republic.
According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), Franklin could bring “significant and potentially life-threatening flash flooding” across Hispaniola Tuesday and Wednesday.
Currently, a Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for both the D.R. and Haiti. Heavy rainfall is additionally expected in Puerto Rico over the same period.
That said, The Palm Beach Post reports that Franklin is expected to strengthen and could become a hurricane within several days.
