On Sunday night, a tornado hit Havana, Cuba after 8:30 pm. After the tornado, at least 4 people were found to be dead and over 190 were injured. This tornado touched down in the northern part of Havana’s Boyeros neighborhood and then it proceeded to travel northeast. The tornado almost hit the National Capital Building, which was only one mile to the north of the tornado. The tornado eventually reached its maximum strength 5 minutes after exciting offshore to the Straits of Florida.
According to an expert at the Cuban Institute of Meteorology, the tornado was most likely an F4 ranking on the Fujita scale. The fact that it would rank as an F4 makes it the strongest tornado to hit in Cuba since 1940 when an F4 tornado killed 20 people.
