Authorities verify electrical recovery of Cuban capital, Havana

Havana, Sep 30 (Prensa Latina) Authorities in the Cuban capital confirmed today the recovery of more than 50 percent of the electrical service and work of several institutions and provinces in the country, after being hit by Hurricane Ian.

During a television interview, the president of the Provincial Defense Council in Havana, Luis Antonio Torres, alluded to the damage caused to the electrical and telecommunications systems as a result of the strong winds and the fall of numerous trees.

After a tour of several municipalities in the capital, the official assured that “only a Civil Defense force like ours and a people and government with the capacity to solve and organize” are capable to confront the damage caused by this meteorological event in the West of the country.

Torres announced that, among the immediate objectives, they intend to restore 100 percent of the primary circuits by next weekend, although they do not rule out the rehabilitation and repair of secondary lines in some Havana areas.

Regarding the disagreement expressed by the population, he affirmed that ‘protesting is a right’, but in the current conditions, ‘yesterday’s protest slows down the fulfillment of that mission and the desire to have full recovery, in the shortest time possible.’

The first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba in Havana said that on Thursday night, local authorities talked and explained the current situation to the residents and recognized social participation in an ‘exercise of hands and souls together’ in the work of sanitation.
