Hurricane floods leave Cubans waist-deep in water

Hurricane floods leave Cubans waist-deep in waterResidents of Cuba’s historic capital Havana were waist-deep in floodwaters Sunday after Hurricane Irma swept by, cutting off power and forcing the evacuation of more than a million people. Wild waves were crashing over the seafront of the old colonial city after Irma ravaged Cuba’s northern coast on its way to Florida. “This is catastrophic, because a lot of the buildings here are not prepared for a downpour like this,” said Yanmara Suarez, standing in the street in a yellow t-shirt with water up to her ankles.
