In Puerto Rico, it's an official holiday, and many Puerto Ricans living in mainland U.S. cities flock home to the island to celebrate. But not this year. And, after Hurricane Maria, thousands of Puerto Ricans who never planned to leave the island are spending their first Three Kings Day in the cold, snowy Northeast.
