Heavy rains batter central Cuba

PDFPrintE-mail

HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) - Heavy rains were reported on Thursday in the Cuban central province of Sancti Spiritus, with records in excess of 15 inches in some places, while the monthly accumulation increased to 14.3 inches.

Statistics from the Delegation of Water Resources in the territory revealed that from eight o'clock on Wednesday to Thursday, the network of rain gauges recorded 8.6 inches, with the highest in south central Sancti Spiritus.

Rafael Rangel Canteli, deputy representative of the instuitute, said that the most significant rainfall was located in Casilda, with 21.9 inches, Topes de Collantes (21.2) and County (17.4), settlements all located in the municipality of Trinidad.

He said that to date where it has rained the most is in the municipality of Cabaiguan and the provincial capital.

Due to the heavy rains, reservoirs have increased their reserves to 567 million cubic meters of water, 45 percent of their total capacity, and now Tuinucú and Siguaney reservoirs are releasing their excesses, he said.

Canteli Rangel also noted that the Zaza dam, the largest in Cuba, with a 1.02 billion cubic metric capacity, received in the last day 172 million and covers almost 37 percent of its filling capacity.

The deputy said the Ventura Paso station in Cabaiguan, reported at three in the morning on Thursday the second highest historical rise of the Zaza River, 15 meters.

Luis Cruz Baguet, civil defense official in the province, highlighted that there have been reports of full or partial flooding of fifty houses, and about 300 residents were evacuated.
