  • Hurricane Irma's impact on Havana

    A heavy storm surge from Hurricane Irma prompted Cuban authorities to evacuate some low lying neighbourhoods along Havana's seaside town of Malecon on Saturday, while wind and rain pummeled the capital. Police called on residents to evacuate several areas that abut Malecon in central Havana, as heavy waves broke over the boulevard. Tropical storm force winds are raking the capital as Hurricane Irma continues on a course that scrapes Cuba before making a turn north to the US mainland later in the day. Some streets were already flooded, and more are expected to as the storm surge continues to grow, driven by high winds and seas. A tanker left Havana Harbor mid-morning, heading for safer waters on the western end of the island, while a fierce ocean swell pounded the shoreline.
