HAVANA Oct 3 Cuba's two nickel processing plants were temporarily shut down on Monday, state-run media said, as powerful Hurricane Matthew threatened the eastern part of the Caribbean island, where the country's top export earning industry is located.

The industry is located in Moa, Holguin province, where Cubaniquel owns one plant and is joint venture partner with Canadian mining company Sherritt International in another. (Reporting by Marc Frank; Editing by Frank Jack Daniel)
