Dominica has 365 rivers – one for each day of the year.

Communities ring the coast, with at least one river making its way through each on its way from the steep, mountainous interior to the ocean.
While sea level rise is a real threat to island nations, the effects of riverine flooding from tropical storms and hurricanes illustrate the challenges for communities lying in deltas, floodplains, including road crossings.
Vulnerability assessments of communities targeted 9 communities as candidates for relocation after Hurricane Erica in 2015.
