The Council of Ministers, led by President Miguel Díaz-Canel Bermúdez, met again, yesterday evening, to evaluate the progress of recovery efforts following the January 27 tornado that struck Havana, and coordinate forces to provide a rapid response.

The President insisted that speed and much sensibility for those affected must define recovery efforts, and that repairs must leave facilities better than before they were damaged.

Division General Ramón Pardo Guerra, head of the Civil Defense General Staff provided an updated report, indicating that 1,286 dwellings were damaged, 1,238 of which have been visited. Total collapses number 123, and partial collapses 625.
