 Authorities Evaluate Gustavs Effects on Western Cuba
ACN correspondents reported that tobacco drying houses have been devastated, and trees and electric and telephone wires were brought down by winds of over 200 kilometers per hour and gusts of more than 340 km/h. The most affected areas in the westernmost province of Cuba are Bahia Honda, Minas de Matahambre, Consolacion del Sur, San Cristóbal and Candelaria.

In San Cristobal, there was serious damage to housing and poultry farms, while work brigades are busy clearing roads blocked by trees that were brought down by the strong winds.

Government authorities of Pinar del Rio will later issue an official assessment of the damage caused by hurricane Gustav, which left this province through the municipality of La Palma.
