Member of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and first secretary of the political organization, Yamilé Ramos, stressed the need to be informed and to act in a disciplined and responsible manner in the face of the new challenge posed by the nature of a region devastated by Hurricane Ian last September.
He emphasized that the experience gained must serve as a guide for every action in which the protection of human life is always the priority.
Representatives from the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering confirmed that the dams scattered across the region have a 57 percent fill capacity. Currently, it only pours once, and the water monitoring is activated despite the good technical condition of the aquariums.
As on previous occasions, the distribution of food and the raw materials used to make bread will be accelerated, while at the same time the population’s water supply will be controlled.
Public health directors confirmed the immediate evacuation of surgical medical brigades to places of possible isolation and the distribution of chlorine tablets for drinking water.
Likewise, the vacationers staying at the popular campsites will be evacuated, and the protection conditions for foreign tourists visiting the municipalities of the province will be checked.
Agriculture ordered the protection of the tobacco harvested in the previous campaign and the collection of root crops and vegetables for their use, as well as the protection of the seeds that will ensure the sowing of the upcoming winter period.
The local broadcasting media are adjusting their programs to inform the population about the development of the new hydrometeorological event.
