Are There Hurricanes or Earthquakes in Cuba?


August to October is hurricane season in Cuba, and October is generally the month when hurricanes are most likely to occur.

Although hurricanes are not a regular occurrence, islands in the Caribbean can be hit by sudden tropical storms at any time of the year.

Cuba sits on top of some fault systems, and earthquakes do occur, although not very often. The most recent earthquake occurred in 2010, and before that there was one in 1992. There were no injuries or property destructions reported in the most recent earthquake, although Cuba has had strong earthquakes that registered a 7.0 on the Richter scale.
