Cuba: Havanans clear up Hurricane Irma havoc as storm rolls north

Havanans began clearing up the Cuban capital, Monday, following Hurricane Irma's 72-hour onslaught across the Caribbean island, during which at least ten people were killed. Local resident Elizabeth Garcia was found sitting outside her home among the remains of her belongings. «We have lost everything in our house and our neighbours also have lost a lot of things, but the most important thing is... Еще that we are alive,» she said. The 8km (5mile) stretch of Havana's seawell was hit with waves up to 8 metres (26 feet) high during the tropical storm, affecting many historical parts of the capital, some of which still remain under water. Over 1 million people were evacuated in all of Cuba due to the hurricane.
