Cuba Suffers Complete Blackout After Hurricane Ian

Hurricane Ian knocked out power to much of Cuba. However, power is now being restored to some areas. Specifically, the Pinar del Rio province is receiving power from the grid. While this is still far from the power supply that was lost during Hurricane Ian, it represents a small percentage of the total daily load that Cuba had before the storm hit.

Hurricane Ian knocked out power to all of Cuba

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, Hurricane Ian battered western Cuba, knocking out power to the entire country. The storm was predicted to dump up to 16 inches of rain, causing flash floods and mudslides. In the province of Pinar del Rio, two people died. Thousands were forced to evacuate their homes. A woman who lives in Spain told CNN she last spoke to her family in Pinar del Rio on Tuesday night. She said her home was on a second floor and that she hadn’t been able to contact them since.

In the eastern part of the country, power is slowly being restored. The power company, Union Electrica, is working to reconnect all sections of the island. Meanwhile, the government hopes to generate enough power in the center and east to restore power to all of the country’s residents.

Power restored in parts of Cuba

Parts of Cuba are still without power, but electricity is slowly being restored to the country. Cuba’s main power plant was knocked out during Hurricane Ian, and it is still unclear when it will be back online. The electrical energy authority says it is working to recover high-tension wires that fell during the storm. The devastation in Havana is particularly severe, with streets and buildings entangled in electrical wire.

Hurricane Ian struck Cuba on Tuesday morning, knocking out electricity across the entire island. The Cuban Energy and Mines Ministry says power has been restored to three regions and is being restored to the rest. The Cuban government has activated two large power plants to restore power to affected areas. Still, authorities say the damage will be significant, and that it will take several days before all of Cuba’s power is back up.

Hurricane Ian knocked out electricity in eastern Cuba, affecting nearly 11 million people. In addition, it destroyed important tobacco farms. Meanwhile, two people were killed in the storm. As the hurricane’s center swung into the Gulf, scenes of destruction began to emerge. On social media, TelePinar tweeted pictures of ceilings collapsed by fallen trees. Others posted videos of cut-off roads and power lines.

Power restored in Pinar del Rio province

In Cuba, more than 38,000 people were forced to evacuate their homes after Hurricane Ian battered the country on Tuesday. While the storm brought life-threatening conditions to the Caribbean island, authorities are taking steps to ensure that residents are safe and without anxiety. Affected residents are already facing shortages of food, fuel, and medicine. Most businesses have remained closed until the damage has been assessed. The two provinces that suffered the most from the hurricane were Pinar del Rio and Artemisa.

Hurricane Ian struck western Cuba on Tuesday as a Category 3 hurricane, dumping several inches of rain on the island. The storm caused flooding and mudslides, killing at least two people, but the worst damage was to the power grid and telecommunications infrastructure. On Wednesday, Cuba’s Energy and Mines Ministry announced that power had been restored in three regions and that other regions were being worked on. Hurricane Ian made landfall in the western province of Pinar del Rio, the island’s main tobacco-growing region.
