FILE – In this Sept. 9, 2017 file photo, strong waves brought by Hurricane Irma hit the Malecon seawall in Havana, Cuba. The elegant, seaside boulevard, where early 20th-century buildings are pounded with massive waves during storms and cold fronts, is now being pushed toward collapse by rising seas, more intense hurricanes, and decades of neglect.
