The damages caused to the electric service by the severe local storm that on the afternoon of Sunday, June 16, hit the city of Las Tunas and, to a lesser extent, areas of the municipalities of Colombia and Majibacoa, have already been restored.

Las Tunas, Cuba.- The engineer Yordis Vega Espinosa, director of the Dispatch office, more than 40 thousand customers were affected as a result of the strong gusts of wind that caused breakdowns in eight primary circuits and shots by atmospheric discharges in 31 transformers, 12 of which were completely damaged.

"To reverse the situation, especially in the provincial capital, we proceeded immediately to the mobilization of specialized personnel from the rest of the municipalities of Las Tunas, without checking out the attention to the interruptions in the places that were not damaged by the meteorological event" , Vega Espinosa said.

There were also reports of damages in the telecommunications service, tree falls and floods in some of the lowest places in the city.
