Storms associated with a weak cold front caused strong winds and heavy rains in the western region of Cuba, particularly on the north coast. 

Gusts higher than 100 km/h (62 mph) were reported in different sites, according to Jose Ramon Palacios, Shift Supervisor at the Weather Forecast Center of the Cuban Institute of Meteorology (INSMET).

The phenomenon was produced by a line of thunder storms associated with a weak cold front. The storms lashed the north coast along the provinces of Pinar del Rio, Mayabeque, Artemisa and Havana.

In Santiago de las Vegas, south of the Cuban capital, a local severe hail storm was registered, along with heavy rains and gusts of up to 110 km/h. Not far from that area, at the Jose Marti International Airport, a 108 km/h wind gust was registered. The Casablanca Meteorological station recorded a windflaw of 103 km/h.

The storms are not expected to repeat and the cold front will not bring significant changes to the weather within the next few hours. No material or human damages have been reported. (JuventudRebelde)
