Two deceased due to landslides in Pinar del Río after the passage of Ian

Two people died in Pinar del Río due to the collapse of their homes after the passage of Hurricane Ian on Tuesday, according to a note from the state agency Prensa Latina, which also explained that so far not all the damage in that western Cuban province has been accounted for. .

According to the information, one of the deceased was a woman who lost her life “after the fall of a wall, in the municipality of San Luis”, and the other died due to “the collapse of the roof of a house in which there were also other people.”

Independent media assured that the woman who died in San Luis was named Damaris Calunga and she was 43 years old. Relatives of the victim said that the woman “did not want to leave her home, located in the area known as El Retiro, for fear of being robbed.”

“The damages are great, although they have not yet been accounted for. Aid is already pouring in from all over the country. We trust the people of Pinar del Río, a noble, hard-working people with a lot of experience in these situations. Rest assured that we are going to recover,” Governor Miguel Díaz-Canel said on his Twitter account from that province, where he arrived on Tuesday.

“We have no choice but to put our chest and go above adversity,” he added.

The Cuban authorities assure that in the province the greatest damages are registered in housing and in tobacco and agricultural production. More than 5 thousand tobacco houses were affected.

Likewise, there is severe damage to the electrical and telephone service, “100% of the clients in the province are without service and it is expected that the restoration may take about a week, although it is not yet possible to specify exactly.”

Hurricane Ian made landfall in Cuba as a category 3 this Tuesday morning through the town of La Coloma, in the main municipality of Pinar del Río, and left the country around 10 in the morning through Puerto Esperanza, north of the Province.
