Hurricane Sandy is now responsible for at least 21 deaths. Cuban state media have announced 11 deaths from the storm, including a 4-month-old boy who was crushed when his home collapsed.

State TV’s nightly newscast says nine of the deaths were in Santiago province in eastern Cuba, which is home to Cuba’s second largest city. It is also known as Santiago.

The other two deaths were reported in Cuba’s Guantanamo province, bordering the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay.

Cuban authorities say most of the fatalities occurred when dwellings fell down, but the cause of others is still being investigated.
