Residents stand above a flooded street in the Cristo Redentor, or Christ Redeemer, neighborhood in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Wednesday, July 10, 2013. Tropical Storm Chantal was downgraded Wednesday to a tropical wave as its scattered clouds drifted quickly westward toward Jamaica. But heavy rains from the weakened system continued to drench parts of Haiti and the Dominican Republic and force the evacuation of thousands from flood-prone areas. (AP Photo)
