Storm affects the northern zone of Cuba’s central province

Sancti Spíritus, Cuba, May 21 (Prensa Latina) Villages, builders and support from various state agencies and sectors are working today to repair the damage caused by a severe local storm in the north of this central Cuban province on Monday.

The main damages are reported in the south of Yaguajay municipality, in the communities of Iguará and Venegas, where electrical networks, houses, roofs of the Mérida Cheese Factory, the Pork Unit and the Venegas livestock farm were damaged.

The workers of major local companies were mobilized to restore the damages and to help the neighboring populations that were affected in their homes and facilities.

According to reports from Sancti Spiritus Meteorological Center, this phenomenon was associated with the passage of a trough in the middle and upper levels of the atmosphere, with hail and winds that exceeded 100 kilometers per hour at some points.
