On August 24, 2015, Tropical Storm Erika caused devastating loss of life and destruction of property on the island of Dominica. Geest Line has a long and proud association with this beautiful and resilient country and we would like to convey sincere condolences to the people of Dominica for the heavy toll that the storm has taken.
12 inches of rain fell within in just a 12-hour period, flooding and mudslides washed away infrastructure and property on the island-nation of approximately 72,000 people. Today there are significant numbers of displaced people who have lost their homes, and many communities remain inaccessible as a result of destruction to roads and bridges.
