Cuban dams have accumulated about 68 percent of their volume, a figure far exceeding the historic average in 1993, and one billion cubic meters more than last year.
Experts from the National Institute of Water Resources highlighted springtime in Cuba began with heavy rains, over the historic average in 70 percent of the country s 169 municipalities.
This rate is expected to continue in June, due to favourable climate conditions, Granma daily reported.
Total water volume in the country surpasses 1.36 billion cubic meters, with the lowest reports in the western region.
