Compare and Contrast

What...........Level 5 Hurricane vs. Level 4 Hurricane

When..........September 2004 vs. September 2005

Where.........Cuba vs. Gulf Coast of the USA

Houses destroyed...........20,000 vs. ?

People evacuated...............1.5 million vs. 500,000?

Deaths ...............Zero vs. 12,000?


Why the difference?


UN Sec for Disaster Reduction says: "The Cuban way could easily be applied to other countries with similar economic conditions and even in countries with greater resources that do not manage to protect their population as well as Cuba does."

And of course, Fidel reminds us, as they have prepared for a US invasion for the last 45 years, for them, a level 5 hurricane is old hat.
