This item appears on page 19 of the March 2019 issue.

A tornado ripped through Havana, Cuba, on Jan. 27, killing at least three people and injuring 172. As trees littered the streets and power lines were ripped down, electricity was cut off to large swathes of the city. The tornado, with winds over 60 miles per hour, was the first tornado to hit Havana in decades.
