Hurricane Matthew Recovery Continues in Eastern Cuba

Guantanamo, January 4 (RHC)-- The recovery process in eastern Cuba, severely damaged by Hurricane Matthew in early October, continues unabated.

According to a report in this morning's edition of the daily Granma newspaper, the economy and general infrastructure of Guantanamo province is progressing in a steady and orderly manner.

This information is corroborated by repair works in several different sectors, with the main focus on housing, which was heavily damaged by the hurricane-force winds.

Hurricane Matthew damaged more than 42,000 dwellings, which represent 72% of the housing located in the five municipalities hit by the devastating storm: Baracoa, Maisí, Imías, San Antonio del Sur and Yateras.
