Heavy rains to persist until Saturday in eastern Cuba

The National Forecast Center of the Cuban Institute of Meteorology (INSMET) informed that the heavy rains hitting Cuba’s eastern region will continue on Friday and Saturday

The institution reported on Cuban television that the most worrying thing is the heavy rainfalls on already saturated soil that could cause further flooding.

A trough over southeastern Cuba with an extensive area of clouds is producing showers and thunderstorms. Tropical cyclonic development in the western Caribbean, where Jamaica and Haiti are already experiencing heavy rains, should not be ruled out.

The National Civil Defense General Staff, INSMET, and the National Institute of Hydraulic Resources (INRH) keep a watchful eye on the situation.
