The evening of Sunday January 27th 2019 , from early hours, radio amateurs in the capital city were on the alert for weather reports, after a cold front had been forecasted. The unexpected event was a tornado of this magnitude within the city itself, where several municipalities of the capital city were affected and where radio amateurs played an exceptional role in this meteorological event that will go down in history.

Here is the link to FRCUBA and several images that give an idea of the magnitude of this disaster that left four casualties and dozens wounded. Intensive work is being done in recovery and attention to victims. https://www.frcuba.cu/filiales-grupos/la-habana/un-importante-papel-el-de-los-radioaficionados-de-la-capital.html
