Idalia’s rains benefit central Cuban province

Sancti Spíritus, Cuba, Aug 29 (Prensa Latina) The rains associated with the passage of Hurricane Idalia by westernmost Cuba are beneficial for agriculture in this central province.

According to reports, average rainfall has been discrete, with higher records in northern Yaguajay municipality, the center, and south, especially in the Escambray mountain range, including Trinidad and Fomento.

Specialists of the Meteorological Center assured the rains in the last 72 hours did not provide the necessary flow to reservoirs, especially Zaza dam, Cuba’s largest man-made water storage, which must raise its level to guarantee rice production.

Even though the weather is beginning to improve, Deivy Pérez, member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and first secretary in Sancti Spiritus province, calls for maintaining the measures aimed at preserving human life and material goods in the face of a possible worsening of the climatological situation as the hurricane moves away from Cuba.

Meteorologist Freddy Ruíz explained that Idalia’s movement to the northern Gulf of Mexico could cause abundant rains, winds from the southern region, and large swells along the coast.
