WORLD BRIEFING / CUBA

Hurricane levels scores of homes

November 10, 2008|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Crashing waves and a powerful sea surge from Hurricane Paloma destroyed hundreds of homes along Cuba's southern coast, but the storm rapidly weakened into a tropical depression.

State media said the late-season storm toppled a major communications tower, interrupted electricity and phone service and sent seawater almost a mile inland, ravaging a coastal community near where it made landfall.

No storm-related deaths were immediately reported.
