Cuban foreign minister expresses condolences over tornado in United States

Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez expressed his condolences due to the devastation caused by a tornado in Mississippi, the United States.

On his Twitter account, Rodriguez expressed his regret for all 26 deaths, so far, due to this natural phenomenon, with a preliminary EF-4 rating, the second highest score in the tornado severity index of the National Meteorological Service.

US President Joe Biden declared a state of emergency, so federal funds will be available to the territory for grants for temporary housing and property repairs.

Over the area, which was impacted by winds of 260-320 kilometers per hour on Friday, the threat of bad weather still weighs heavily as meteorologists warned residents to prepare for another storm on Sunday night.
