According to the Wall Street Journal, on 6 August, the Government of Cuba reported that the Matanzas super tanker base had been hit and lit by a lightning storm during the night of five days, causing several major explosions. The Matanzas Super Tanker Base is an oil storage terminal located near a major power plant in Cuba, approximately 50 miles east of the capital, Havana (approximately 80.5 kilometres). “We work hard under very difficult conditions.” President Diaz Canel of Cuba wrote on social platforms that “it may take some time to put out the fire”. The Department of State of the United States expressed its gratitude for the technical assistance it had provided to Cuba, and the Government of Cuba indicated that Mexico and Venezuela, which had a large State-owned oil industry, had also provided assistance on 6 days. According to the Wall Street Journal, the port of Matanzas is the only port in Cuba equipped with large tankers and is the centre of Cuban infrastructure, and Cuba may be forced to halt its oil production in the event of large-scale damage to the docks, which is estimated to be about 40,000 barrels per day. The incident was the second major disaster in Cuba in recent months. In early May, 46 people were killed and dozens injured when a gas explosion exploded at the famous Saratoga Hotel in Havana. == sync, corrected by elderman == @elder_man
