There is still no response to the official request for information from our Consulate, but public sources advance sad data on Cubans who have died or disappeared. We remain attentive, the message adds.
Press reports show that rescuers have so far removed 18 dead bodies.
The same sources suggest that among the disappeared, of various nationalities, there are people of Cuban nationality.
At a press conference, the mayor of Miami-Dade, Daniella Levine, said that there are 145 unaccounted for.
