Cuba's President talks to residents affected by Eta storm
Santa Clara, Cuba, Nov 12 (Prensa Latina) Cuba's President Miguel Diaz-Canel talked to hundreds of residents during his tour on Thursday through the municipality of Manicaragua, in the central Villa Clara province, affected by the passage of the Eta storm.
The president was interested in the inhabitants' state of health and their social situation in that territory on the edge of the Escambray mountain range, where heavy rainfalls caused floods which led to the isolation of several communities and damage to agriculture.
Diaz-Canel told the locals that representatives of the highest government leadership in the country has been touring the most hit provinces by Eta storm to verify the damage and monitor the recovery work.
The head of State detailed that Cuba's Vice President Salvador Valdes is visiting the eastern region, and Prime Minister Manuel Marrero the provinces of Sancti Spiritus and Ciego de Avila.
Among the places visited by Diaz-Canel, stood out the intra-mountain valley of Jibacoa - very affected by heavy rainfalls - where there is a coffee pulper that processes around 2,300 coffee cans, which were urgently harvested in recent days, most of them allocated for exports.
The president also toured some infrastructures that were damaged by heavy rainfalls, including the Pulido bridge over the Matagua river on the road that connects Manicaragua with Santa Clara head province.
