Cuba: Havana flooded as Irma lashes into Cuba

Wind thrashed and rain doused Havana on Sunday, as Hurricane Irma swept across the Cuban capital causing widespread flooding. Havana's landmark seawall and surrounding streets were all submerged under water as Irma continued to pound the city for more than 12 hours. The 8km (5mile) stretch of coast was hit with waves up to 8 metres (26 feet) high. Last minute evacuations of up to 10,000... Еще residents in central Havana were organised in the capital. Rescue teams were present on the flooded streets, ready with inflatable boats to rescue those still stranded in the floods. Irma has been called the most powerful Atlantic hurricane ever recorded, having already hit and devastated several Caribbean island nations, including Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic and Haiti.
