Cuban President Miguel Diaz Canel visited parts of Cuba that were hit hard by Hurricane Ian and vowed that it would rise “above adversity”.

Power has been restored in parts of Cuba after Ian pummelled the western end of the island and caused a total blackout.  Eleven million people were left in the dark.

Officials earlier said “the electrical system had collapsed after one of the country’s main power plants could not be brought back online”.  Two people were reported dead and buildings were damaged nationwide.

The blackout also meant that water was unavailable in many areas which rely on water pumps, leaving millions of residents unable to bathe or boil water to drink.  Food in some areas was reportedly spoiling without functioning refrigerators and freezers in people’s homes.
