Ida Left Heavy Rains in Western Cuba

HAVANA TIMES, Nov. 10 – Hurricane Ida caused heavy rains on Sunday and Monday in Cuba’s western province of Pinar del Rio, reported the Cuban Meteorological Institute.  At Cape San Antonio, the westernmost tip of the island, the precipitation reached 8.5 inches.

The local press reported on Tuesday that any losses to tobacco nurseries and vegetables from the rains were outweighed by the benefit of rising reservoirs.  The region was suffering from one of the driest rainy seasons in years.

Ida, as a weakened tropical storm is presently entering the US Gulf Coast in Alabama.  It is expected to further lose in intensity as the day progresses.
