  • Description

    HURRICANE "CARLA", NOW BATTERING TEXAS AND LOUISIANA, HIT THE WESTERN REGIONS OF CUBA, SEPT. 7. FILM FROM PINAR DEL RIO PROVINCE, SEPT. 8, SHOWS SOME OF THE DAMAGE DONE BY THE STORM.

    THE COLOMA RIVER OVERFLOWED ITS BANKS AND INUNDATED THE COUNTRYSIDE, SWEEPING AWAY TREES AND CROPS. IN THE TOWN OF COLOMA FLOOD WATER ROSE TO A HEIGHT OF SEVERAL FEET, AND RESIDENTS AND ANIMALS WERE TRAPPED IN FARMS AND HOUSES.

    PINAR DEL RIO IS ONE OF CUBA'S RICHEST TOBACCO GROWING AREAS, AND ALTHOUGH THERE WAS NO LOSS OF LIFE REPORTED FROM THE THINLY POPULATED PROVINCE, THE DAMAGE TO CROPS ALONE IS A SEVERE BLOW TO LOCAL ECONOMY.
