Camaguey, Cuba, Oct 17 (Prensa Latina) After the damage caused by Hurricane Irma in Cuba on September 9, the city of Nuevitas, located 50 kilometers north of the city of Camaguey, the provincial capital of the same name, is pushing ahead a plan of house construction that includes 300 new dwellings.
Nuevitas, the most important industrial city of the province of Camaguey, was one of the most hardly hit territories by Hurricane Irma, which damaged more than 4,000 homes in this port town.
However, the local government is drafting the necessary forces and resources to rebuild the affected homes.
Among the actions in the program, a total of 50 houses will be built based on vinyl polychloride (PetroCasas).
These houses are resistant to the effects of hurricanes. The designs executed in Cuba come from a project of cooperation with the Venezuelan government.
The program has also scheduled to build more than 100 homes, and another 60, with block walls, until the end of the current year.
The levels of production of construction materials are being increased.
