The Government of Panama sent an aeronautical team to the Dominican Republic to contribute to the emergency work by the hurricanes that hit the Caribbean region, where more than twenty people have died this week.

Panamanian President Juan Carlos Varela said in his Twitter account that a Joint Task Force (FTC) team, which is part of the country's security and relief corps, was activated "to support the Caribbean islands and Cuba that are affected by Hurricane Irma. "

"The impact of #Irma on Cuba is strong, this country has been very supportive of Panama, let us all prepare to support the Cuban people," he added.

In another publication he explained that the aircraft traveling to the Caribbean will establish an air bridge between the Dominican Republic and the greater territory of the British Virgin Islands, Tortola Island, to evacuate Panamanian citizens.
