Hurricane Isidore brushed Cuba much more lightly than feared. People all 
over Havana prepared for the worst as the strengthening through friday gave 
little indication of whether it would continue to turn westward.

Wind and rain was fairly common in Havana and the surrounding province of 
the same name but little more than that. So seems we have been lucky this 

No reports as to the damage to the tobacco fields in Pinar del Rio at this 
time although, once again, thought to be lighter than at first feared. There 
is a lot of rain about so flooding will be the most likely problem to deal 
with through the weekend.

Hello from Havana.

Luckily I don’t have too much to report!

According to the cpoa Isidore is 207km away from Havana.

We are experiencing wind gusts and some showers however nothing to get concerned over yet.

The city has prepared well as Mitch is still quiet fresh in our memories.

By now most employers have sent everyone home.

Find attached a photo from my balcony (18km east of Havana) at 15:00hrs 20/9/2002


I will give you an update of the western provinces once I have seen the local news tonight.


Until then


Michael Connolly
