Cuban authorities check preventive measures due to rain forecasts

Havana, Aug 26 (Prensa Latina) Prime Minister Manuel Marrero on Saturday assessed the measures that must be taken in western Cuba to protect the population and material assets, given the forecasts of heavy rains in next few hours.

The head of Government wrote on his account on X, a social network formerly known as Twitter, that he and other officials checked the weather situation and the actions to be taken in the event of damage.

Marrero called on people to stay informed, as well as to follow the guidelines from the Civil Defense and the Institute of Meteorology. We must take all preventive measures, he pointed out.

The Prime Minister informed that the worst impact is estimated in the western province of Pinar del Río, a territory that was hit in September 2022 by Hurricane Ian, which left behind a trail of destruction in homes, serious damage to agriculture, flooding in low-lying areas and affected power services throughout the country.

According to the Cuban News Agency (ACN), seven medical-surgical brigades are ready in Pinar del Río to leave for places that are traditionally cut off by rain and mountainous areas, which will provide solutions to emergencies.
