HAVANA (AP) A tornado and pounding rains smashed into the eastern part of Cubas capital overnight, toppling trees, bending power poles and flinging shards of metal roofing through the air as the storm cut a path of destruction across eastern Havana.
Power was cut to many areas and President Miguel Diaz-Canel said Monday at least three people were killed and 172 injured.
Julio Menendez, a 33-year-old restaurant worker said Havanas 10 de Octubre borough looks like a horror movie.
