Cuban Civil Defense Authority issues informative stage

The Cuban Defense Authority has issued the informative stage, prior to hurricane watch and warning, for most Cuban provinces in the face of the current track of hurricane Irma, a category 5 on Tuesday.

Irma will continue to intensify and will keep heading west over the next 12 to 24 hours at 22 kilometers per hour, which makes it a potential danger for Cuba, the Civil Defense Authority warns.

Given the characteristics and track of the storm, the provinces of Guantanamo, Santiago de Cuba, Granma, Holguin, Las Tunas, Camaguey, Ciego de Avila, Sancti Spiritus, Cienfuegos, Villa Clara and Matanzas must implement reduction disaster measures corresponding to the informative stage as of Tuesday at 15:00 hours, the authority said.

The Civil Defense Authority alerts the people to follow the information to be further released on the natural phenomenon and the measures to be taken to protect human life and property.
