  • Really going after the high priorities for reducing road deaths. Good job.

  • A major disaster is unfolding in Cuba­world/world/americas/cuba/article2642461­16.html

    A lightning strike during a thunderstorm last night set off an explosion and fire around 7 pm in a half-full 50,000 cubic-meter crude oil storage tank in the port, which in turn subsequently detonated a second tank.

    17 firefighters are missing. 77 people were receiving medical treatment as of this afternoon. Crucial firefighting equipment was also lost in the flames.

    With six other storage supertanks in the immediate vicinity, the fire continues out of control.

    Matanzas is engulfed in toxic smoke, which is also clouding the skies of Havana. The people are already worn out from shortages, repeated long blackouts, and a dengue epidemic on top of the COVID pandemic.

  • Terrible. Not only are there deaths and scores of injured, but many more will have adverse effects from the smoke, and the country will feel the economic hit of losing the fuel and having to shut down the facility.
