Wilma Floods Havana
Wednesday, November 02, 2005   By: Juan Paxety

Photos of the flooding in Havana

Hurricane Wilma breached the Malecon seawall and flooded the city of Havana. There's been little news in the international press, but even fidel can't stop the Internet. The Real Cuba has lots of photos of the flood and destruction such as these:

The streets were turned into rivers

This is the old Blanquita Theater - renamed the Karl Marx Theater after fidel stole it.

Update - Killcastro's blog has a series of posts on Wilma's destruction of Havana. These guys once lived there and are able to offer insight you can't get elsewhere. Here's the link to an index of their posts.
