Havana, Jun 30 (RHC)-- Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel highlighted on Wednesday the beginning of recovery efforts after the recent seismic activity registered in the western part of the country, with a magnitude of 5.1 on the Richter scale.

The president pointed out on Twitter the permanent contact between the nation's top leadership and the authorities of the province of Artemisa, where the quake had the most significant impact.

The telluric movement, the fourth this year, took place the day before at 11:00, local time, at the preliminary coordinates: 22.8 degrees north latitude and -83.22 west longitude.
