Storage facilities throughout Dominica is limited, most of the warehouses (public and private) are located in Roseau because of the proximity of the main port. In case of a natural disaster there are two warehouses of the Office of Disaster Management (ODM) that are located in Jimmit. During the last emergency in October 2017, Woodbridge Bay Port facilities were used to support the emergency response. There are no proper storage facilities in the east coast area which is most vulnerable area to tropical cyclone disasters. 

Commercial Storage is available for rent primarily in the west coast near Belfast as there is an industrial compound. There is limited storage available. 

Due to the last emergency situation humanitarian organization used small infrastructures as temporary warehouses.
