Havana Cuba was hit by huge tsunami like waves during Hurricane Sandy. Monster waves came crashing down on the cliffs of El Morro and then climbed the walls to reach hieghts of over 165 feet above the normal sea level. This photo captures the amazing power of the normally calm Cuban waters off the bay of Havana.
Thousands of Cubans watched in awe as the massive waves kept pounding the 500 years old fortress that was originally built by the Spanish Conquistadors to protect the jewels & treasures of Havana.
No one was injured during the massive wave attack on El Morro. This type of 100+ foot waves hit Havana every 10-15 years with the last set of rouge waves seen in 1997 during hurricane Georges. Varadero Beach was not affected by the hurricane.
Today Havana has become a mecca for tourist that seek a higher level of adventure, culture, art, history and of coarse Latin Salsa dancing. Cuba is fast becoming the center of modern travel paradise with its Spanish arcitecture and amazing beaches.
