Bank holiday weekend for Día de la Hispanidad coming along with tail end of hurricane Joaquin

Many shops, banks and offices will be closed on Monday, 12 October for the celebration of Día de la Hispanidad, or Spain Day. The national public holiday commemorates the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus on 12 October 1492, something that has particular significance for Spain because it transformed the still developing modern nation into a world Imperial empire which lasted until 1898.
