Message from Pepe Bringas:

Dear friends.

I'm making a connection from the Miramar Trade Center,

Claudia, who works with an electric generator has Wifi.

You have seen the news. I do not have much to add.

Unfortunately, as many as 10 people have been died to date.

Thank God the number of victims has not been so great in

comparison with the magnitude of the event.

In the morning we discussed with the Bishop the situation, which is

very serious in Esmeralda, Nuevitas and towns of Matanzas,

including Itabo. We were unable to collect any damage information due to

the lack of telephone communication within those areas.

As soon as basic services are recovered in Havana, above all

electrical, we will proceed to make a diagnosis of the communities

to mobilize emergency aid.

At home all is well. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

abz- Pepe

 

Queridos amigos.

Estoy logrando una conexión desde el Miramar Trade Center, oficina de

Claudia, que funciona con generador electrico y tiene wifi.

Uds han visto las noticias. No tengo mucho más que añadir.

Lamentablemente se reportan oficialmente hasta ahora diez personas fallecidas.

Gracias a dios el número de víctimas no ha sido tan grande en

comparación con la magnitud del evento.

En la mañana hemos analizado con la Obispa la situación, que se

presenta de gravedad en Esmeralda, Nuevitas y poblados de Matanzas,

incluido Itabo. No hemos podido levantar información de daños debido a

que no hay comunicación telefónica con aquellas áreas.

En cuanto se recuperen los servicios básicos en La Habana, sobre todo

eléctrico, procederemos a realizar un diagnóstico de las comunidades

para movilizar ayuda de emergencia.

En casa todos bien. Gracias por sus pensamientos y oraciones.

abz- Pepe
