Gulf Coast Officials Want Cuba’s Hurricane Secrets

HAVANA TIMES, Jan. 28 – Politics aside, Galveston, Texas and Cuba were both hit hard by Hurricane Ike last September. As the storm approached over two million people were evacuated out of harm’s way in Cuba, a monumental feat that Gulf Coast officials would like to learn more about.

Later this year Galveston Mayor Lyda Ann Thomas will head a delegation of regional officials to Cuba to learn how to improve upon their hurricane response networks, reported the Galveston County Daily News. The tentative date for the trip is in April.

Hurricane preparation and information is one of several areas of cooperation that a thaw in US-Cuba relations would make possible. Others include efforts to combat drug and people trafficking. Thomas and her fellow delegates will publish a report on their findings when they return to the United States, said the Daily News.
