The president commented that, during the rains, there were places where the flooding reached levels that had not been seen in the last 30 years and even in not a few places the inhabitants say that it is the first time that the water reaches those heights, and on all after an extreme drought.

The meeting was held by videoconference with the main political and governmental authorities of the provinces of Camagüey, Las Tunas, Granma, Holguín and Santiago de Cuba.

The president indicated that among the immediate tasks, after the recovery stage, is to study everything that happened and update the disaster reduction plans for this type of intense rain.

He reported that the willingness of Venezuela to support the recovery has already been received, as well as the United Nations system of organizations on the island.

Díaz-Canel entrusted the construction and transportation authorities to carry out a survey and seek solutions to respond to the impact on roads and railway lines.

The most affected territories were Yara, Jiguaní, Manzanillo, Media Luna and Niquero. 105 communities were isolated, 14 of them due to landslides and 91 due to river floods, with a population of 18,585 people.
