Dominica Post Hurricane Recovery Plan and Prioritisation
The PDNA puts total damages and losses from Hurricane Maria at 226% of 2016 GDP, or $1.31bn. The effect of this damage and loss is greater than this number suggests because Maria spared no part of the island from total destruction. There are no areas of stability or refuge from which we can support and supply other parts. The entire power grid was down and remains 97% so. Water and sanitation pipes are broken. We lost nearly 100% of crops. Maria damaged ninety percent of our homes. She severely compromised the road and bridge network.
