FIJIAN students in Cuba are fine after Hurricane Irma that hit the country last week.

Romeo Wainimala Naiorosui, a final year medical student in Cuba, confirmed this yesterday saying they had kept in touch with one another, with some students already managing to make contact with their families in Fiji.

"Fortunately for us, we have generators and water supply from tanks to keep us going. We have been in touch, no injuries, no fatalities," he said.

"The majority of us have been in contact with our families via social media and phone calls."

Mr Naiorosui said there were about 30 Fijian students studying medicine in Cuba.
