According to a wire from the Cuban News Agency (ACN) in Las Tunas, this region has advanced notably in the repair of schools, of assistance centers, of industries and of other damaged facilities, while with the support of the residents more than 1, 400, 000 cubic meters of debris have been picked up in the communities.
The territory also advances in the rehabilitation of those more than 80, 000 housings, damaged by the two meteorological disasters, in dependence of the available material resources.
Las Tunas, 690 kilometers to the east of Havana, has been historically that of less affectation in Cuba by the hurricanes, because it is protected in the east by four mountainous provinces; however, Ike and Paloma caused to this region considerable losses in its agricultural fields, housings, and social, productive facilities.
