Commander of the Revolution Ramiro Valdes toured the towns of the northern coast of the central province of Camaguey that took the brunt of the havoc wreaked by Hurricane Irma on September 8.

Along Army Corps General Ramón Espinosa Martín, Chief of the Defense Council of the Eastern Strategic Region, Valdes spoke with villagers and workers who work to recover the communities affected by Hurricane Irma.

The Commander talked to Mayelín González, a woman residing in the town of Moscu, next to the Brazil sugar mill, whose house was completely destroyed by the 180 mile per hour winds of Irma.

The lady expressed Valdes her gratitude for the promptness in building her home, now with better construction conditions than the previous one, according to herself.

On the details of these actions, Commander Valdes exchanged with the engineer Melba Ana Gonzáles, deputy director of the AZCUBA Sugar Company, the main entity in charge of these tasks, who explained that currently, of the 83 houses they plan to rebuild, there are more than 70 with considerable advances in their completion.

The engineer added that, in order to complete the task at hand, they have mobilized over 740 workers. Their main goal is to restore quickly the several communities close to the sugar mill and the factory itself.

Commander Valdes also visited the coastal city of Nuevitas, where the port and main industries were severely damaged by the hurricane.
