“In front of the computing palace in Havana,” wrote a Twitter user along with the hashtag #CubaPaLaCalle and a video in which the second tree can be seen falling in the midst of dozens of people. In the images you can see the trunk of another already on the floor.
“And now a tree falls in the middle of a public road, it is not known if there are injuries… without words about Cuba,” wrote the user Rafa on the Twitter social network.
“The tree in Parque de la Fraternidad fell, the one on route P14. It’s one after the other,” Jesús Dannys Perez said on Facebook.
Cuban official journalist Lázaro Manuel Alonso said that “three people were injured when a tree fell in Havana. They are two minors and one adult.
