Cuban government says 10 people killed by Hurricane Irma

HAVANA, Sept 11 (Reuters) - At least 10 people were killed after Hurricane Irma tore through Cuba over the weekend, authorities said in a statement on Monday, bringing the death toll in the Caribbean from the ferocious storm to 38.

A statement from civil defense authorities said the victims perished due to various causes such as accidents, collapsed buildings and not heeding orders to evacuate in the four provinces of Havana, Matanzas, Sancti spiritus and Ciego de Avila, where the storm hit hard.
