Tide of the Dead
Every year between October and November tidal waves reach the Caribbean. In peaqueras villages of northern Puerto Rico these are known as the tide of the dead. That's because the day of the dead and storm surges occur for the same period. Are very difficult times for fishing and many residents and tourists have died dragged by the strong pre-Christmas surge.
