Record cold in Cuba

(BBC) An Arctic wave brought record cold weather to Cuba yesterday forcing residents to bundle up using what they could find in their closets.

The temperature fell to as cold as 35 degrees Fahrenheit (1.9 Celsius) in some areas.

The cold front came down from a continental cold air mass that has dumped snow on much of the Midwest and eastern United States.

In Havana, residents wearing layers, coats and hats did their best to keep warm in the coldest weather recorded in 50 years.
