I have been reading about the effect of hurricanes in Cuba. It is unbelievable to think that in this century which is barely a decade old there have been 7 hurricanes with over a billion dollars of damage, the worst being Ike which was 7.3 billion. Considering the impact in the US, this is so much worse. Cuba has a GDP of $57 in 2010. Compared to that the oil rig fire is nothing.
