Embassy Of Dominica in China
Permanent Mission of The Commonwealth Of Dominica to the United Nations
- - I have come to Coconut Beach in Dominica, the Nature Island, volcanically spit and shaped in the Lesser Antilles, to spend Christmas holidays with my spouse Captain Tom. He arrived here on November 20th, delayed by scores of mudslides that blocked passage on cliffside roads. The island suffered the only major earthquake in its history - 6.5 on the Richter scale, the epicenter of the quake was 10 kilometers from the east coast of the island; the quake occurred at 6 a.m. on Sunday, November 21st.
- - Half way along the curved necklace of islands comprising the Windward Islands of the Eastern Caribbean basks a mountainous rock of 290 sq miles (750 sq km).  At longitude 61º 20W, and latitude 15º 25N, Dominica is a land of steep mountains and cliffs plummeting straight into the blue Caribbean sea on the western side and the grey Atlantic on the eastern.  Rising at the highest point to Mt. Diablotin at 4,747 ft. (1,447m), this is a country of raw beauty, rugged headlands and moody mountains, their peaks often buried in cloud.
