Sandy Delgado, a CIMAS Research Associate the National Hurricane Center funded through the Climate Program Office's Climate Monitoring Program, had the opportunity to visit Cuba as a participant in the VIII Cuban Congress of Meteorology in Havana.
Delago, who immigrated to the U.S. from Canada as a boy, gave a presentation on his CPO-funded project on hurricane reanalysis and commented on the reanalysis of a few of the major hurricanes that have affected the island in the past century.

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
