The impact of lightning caused an impressive fire in a fuel depot in Cuba

The impact of lightning on a fuel tank caused an impressive fire in the town of La Matanza on the island of Cuba.

The images of the explosion quickly went viral on social networks, in the midst of the energy crisis that the island is currently experiencing.

According to the provincial government report, no people affected by the explosion were reported.

The greatest concern of the inhabitants of the surrounding areas and the firefighters who work in the area is that the fire spread to other fuel tanks in the reservation complex, causing a fire of greater magnitude.

The incident took place in the complex that has the largest amount of fuel reserves on the island.

The Cuban dictator, Miguel Díaz-Canel, specified that the incident “originated from an atmospheric discharge in one of the tanks that stores the national crude oil that serves the Antonio Guiteras thermoelectric plant.”

In images broadcast on television, an immense column of black smoke was seen covering the sky of the city of Matanzas, the provincial capital.

The fire occurs at a time when the island has been facing power generation difficulties since last May due to communist mismanagement and the obsolescence of its eight thermoelectric plants, breakdowns and scheduled maintenance, lack of fossil fuels and increased demand due to the summer heat.

The generation deficit has caused blackouts of up to 12 hours a day in some regions of the country, which have caused irritation in the population and even some protests in rural towns, where people have banged cauldrons shouting slogans at night.

The country’s electrical system currently has an average power distribution capacity of 2,500 megawatts, insufficient for the demand of households at times of maximum consumption, which reaches 2,900 megawatts, according to official information.
