US Cuba relations and hurricanes/oil spills

What natural disasters since the Cuban Revolution have affected both the United States and Cuba (i.e. hurricanes Dennis and Katrina)? Also, where would I find the best primary sources regarding either government's response to the disasters?

I'm interested in US-Cuban relations and recently with various hurricanes and the oil spill from 2010, they have been very interesting. for example the current embargo prevents u.s. companies from cleaning up american oil in cuban waters. i'd like to go as far back as the beginning of the castro government to see what other big hurricanes, or maybe even oil spills, have occurred, and if things were equally screwy and weird 50 years ago.
