A tornado ripped through Havana, Cuba on Sunday night (Jan. 27) killing four and injuring almost 200 people. Though Cuba has encountered several hurricanes, tornados are a much rarer occurrence. Reuters reported this was the strongest one to hit Cuba in close to 80 years, arriving with 200-mile-per-hour winds.

Photos from Monday show the devastation in Havana, as locals clean up and sort out the mangled wreckage.
