Hurricanes in Cuba

Travel information

Hurricanes are tropical cyclones. Danger arises through very high wind speeds, waves and heavy rainfalls. In Cuba a common word for a hurricane is 'ciclon'. Season is from May through November. Traditionally, through its well organized system of civil protection Cuba is better prepared for hurricanes then the USA or other countries of the Caribbean. Cuba suffers less loss of human life. Is is not safe from substantial material damages though.

Below, you can check the current weather status obtained from the US hurricane center.

At 1000 AM CDT (1500 UTC), the center of Tropical Storm Cristobal
was located near latitude 18.6 North, longitude 92.0 West.  
Cristobal is moving toward the south-southeast near 3 mph (6 km/h),

On the forecast track, the center will move over the land mass of 
eastern Mexico through Thursday.  The center is forecast to move 
back over the Gulf of Mexico by Friday.
 
Maximum sustained winds are near 60 mph (95 km/h) with higher gusts.
Slow weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Cristobal 
will likely become a tropical depression by Thursday evening.  Some 
re-strengthening is expected to begin on Friday.
 
Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 60 miles (95 km)
from the center.
 
The estimated minimum central pressure is 995 mb (29.39 inches).

Tropical Storm Cristobal Discussion Number   8
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL       AL032020
1000 AM CDT Wed Jun 03 2020

Observations from an Air Force Hurricane Hunter aircraft and 
imagery from the Sabancuy radar in Mexico indicate that the center 
of Cristobal made landfall in the state of Campeche just to the 
west of Ciudad del Carmen around 1330 UTC.  Data from the aircraft 
and earlier surface reports indicate that the landfall intensity 
was about 50 kt.  Now that the center of circulation has moved 
inland, a gradual weakening trend should commence.  However, the 
large circulation will take some time to spin down.  It is 
anticipated that Cristobal will weaken to a depression by tomorrow 
evening.  Later in the forecast period, the system is expected to 
emerge into the Gulf of Mexico so some re-strengthening is 
predicted.  However, the global models show increased southwesterly 
shear influencing the cyclone over the northern Gulf of Mexico and 
this should limit intensification.  The official intensity forecast 
is similar to the latest LGEM and HCCA guidance.  However, there is 
significant uncertainty as to how strong a cyclone we will be 
dealing with near the northern Gulf coast this weekend.

The storm has been moving slowly south-southeastward, or 150/3 kt.  
Over the next couple of days, Cristobal should move slowly in a 
cyclonic loop while embedded within a broader gyre over Central 
America and eastern Mexico.  Then, the cyclone should turn 
northward into a weakness in the mid-level flow over the Gulf of 
Mexico, and approach the northern Gulf coast within 4 days.  The 
official track forecast is very close to the latest dynamical model 
consensus, TVCA. 
 
 
Key Messages:
 
1. Damaging and deadly flooding has already occurred in portions of 
Mexico and Central America.  Cristobal is expected to produce 
additional extreme rainfall amounts through the end of the week. 
The heaviest additional rainfall is expected over far southern 
Mexico and portions of the Yucatan Peninsula, while also extending 
along the Pacific coast from Chiapas to Guatemala and El Salvador. 
This rainfall could cause widespread life-threatening flash floods 
and mudslides. 

2. Even though Cristobal has made landfall, tropical storm 
conditions will continue along and near the coast of Mexico through 
Thursday, especially over western Campeche, eastern Tabasco, 
and northern Chiapas states.

3. Cristobal is forecast to re-emerge over the southern Gulf of 
Mexico Friday or Friday night and move northward over the central 
and northern Gulf of Mexico over the weekend.  There is a risk of 
storm surge, heavy rainfall, and wind impacts beginning over the 
weekend along portions of the U.S. Gulf Coast from Texas to the 
Florida Panhandle.  While it is too soon to determine the exact 
location, timing, and magnitude of these impacts, interests in these 
areas should monitor the progress of Cristobal and ensure they have 
their hurricane plan in place.

We are frequently asked: How are we supposed to behave as a tourist when we get surprised on the island?

Two simple rules:
1. Stay home.
2. Follow the orders of the Civil Protection authorities.

All our Casas have a solid construction base, none is made of wood.

Officially a hurricane starts when wind speed exceeds 118 Km/hour. But even at 50 Km/h persons are advised to seek protection.
