Only in the DR: King Kong vs Tropical Storm Emily!

This post is also available in: Spanish

In preparation for the arrival of Tropical Storm Emily last week, the Dominican Republic prepared in many ways – by evacuating ‘at risk’ areas and converting the ‘Palacio Nacional’ into a refugee center, for example……oh and they also tied down King Kong!  

The above photo was posted on the Facebook profile of Christina Creighton, with the comment ‘Operativo de prevencion…’ and although it is actually rather sensible to secure King Kong, so that he doesn’t fly away, the simple idea that he might actually have gotten blown away is just hilarious! Also secured is a giant green elephant (visible in the background of the photo).

This photo was taken in Santo Domingo and since Tropical Storm Emily has now passed through – I can’t help but wonder ‘Did King Kong survive?’ Does anyone have a post-Tropical Storm Emily photo of King Kong?

Many thanks to Christina Creighton for this hilarious photo!
