The Cuban Institute of Meteorology has issued a Special Notice No. 1 due to the strong and intense rains that have affected the provinces of Camagüey and Santiago de Cuba in the last 24 hours.
The hydrometeorological situation is due to the combination of a trough in the middle and upper levels of the troposphere over the Gulf of Mexico, a humid flow from the south in the low levels and afternoon instability.
The meteorological stations have registered accumulations greater than 100 millimeters in 21 locations, including Tele-mail Delicias, Acueducto Jesús Menéndez, Embalse Juan Sáez, and Tele-mail Bartle in Las Tunas, as well as Embalse Protesta de Baraguá in Santiago de Cuba.
These unstable conditions are expected to persist throughout the national territory in the coming days, which could generate showers, rains, and electrical storms in much of the country.
It is recommended that the population take precautionary measures and be aware of updates from the Institute of Meteorology to avoid material and human damage. (ALH)
