Heavy rains reported in eastern Cuba

Havana, Nov 18 (Prensa Latina) Cuba has reported heavy rains in the eastern region over the last 24 hours, according to the Institute of Meteorology (INSMET) on Saturday.

The INSMET has reported several showers, rains and thunderstorms in eastern Cuba, some of which have been locally intense.

The network of meteorological stations and the rain gauges of the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources have showed significant precipitations, over 50 millimeters of rains in 44 areas, exceeding 100 millimeters in some locations.

Precipitations are caused by unstable conditions in an area of low pressure that passed over the eastern region of Cuba, in interaction with a frontal trough that extends over the Bahamas.

During the next few hours, the area of unstable weather will be moving eastwards, gradually moving away from Cuba, experts indicated.

The existence of moderate humidity values in the area and the warming of the day may encourage some showers and downpours in eastern Cuba, which can be strong in some locations.

Taking into account the rains that occurred in previous days, as well as the saturation of the soil and the state of dams, authorities are paying attention to the rainfalls and the national hydrological situation.
