Sandy left into the sea at 06:00 in the vicinity of cabo Lucrecia, in Holguin province (760 km east of Havana), after moving for almost five hours over Cuba, said on television meteorologist Jose Rubiera, head of the INSMET forecasts.

Cuban authorities have not reported major damage or victims by the passage of Sandy, that was moving with maximum sustained winds of 165 kmph (category 2 hurricane) and moves at about 30 KmPH, according to the INSMET.

Strong floods and rainfall throughout Eastern Cuba are the predominant elements in Thursday's forecasts for Hurricane Isaac, which increased its strength after leaving Cuban territory. Rains persist in most of the country, but they will be stronger and more intense from Camagüey to Guantánamo, in the east, according to the Institute of Meteorology (INSMET).

Hurricane Sandy has reached south-east Cuba and strengthened into a strong category two hurricane. His winds reached a speed of 175km/h (110mph) as it hit land just west of Santiago de Cuba, where it cut power and toppled the trees.

Thousands of residents and tourists have been moved from vulnerable areas under the country's well-rehearsed hurricane evacuation procedures. In Santiago de Cuba, some hotels were setting up generators to provide emergency power.Heavy rains were falling throughout the storm-stricken region, with forecasters predicting 6 to 12 inches for most areas and as much as 20 inches in isolated places.
