Hay un fenómeno conocido como la “Lluvia de Peces”, que ocurre una vez o dos veces al año en el pequeño pueblo de Yoro, Honduras. Cientos de pequeños peces aún vivos se caen del cielo durante grandes tormentas usualmente en mayo o junio.

En la década de 1970, un equipo de National Geographic fue testigo del evento, pero algunos siguen siendo escépticos. ¿Crees tú en la “Lluvia de Peces”?

Aquí hay un video de 2012 de un hombre hondureño muestrando los peces. (¡Nunca me di cuenta de que los hondureños hablan tan parecida a los salvadoreños!)

There’s a phenomenon known as the “Lluvia de Peces” (Rain of Fish) which happens once or twice a year in the small town of Yoro, Honduras. Hundreds of small, still-living fish fall from the sky during big storms usually in May or June.

In the 1970s, a National Geographic team witnessed the event but some remain skeptical. Do you believe in the “Lluvia de Peces”?

Here’s a 2012 video from a Honduran man that shows the fish. (I never realized Hondurans speak so similar to Salvadorans!)
