Diana Nyad and team hit by a squall, still soldiering on


Off Nyad’s website:

Angie Sollinger with the Media Ops team reported that just after 8pm EDT “all hell broke loose here.” Out of nowhere, a squall “blew up very quick” and hit the flotilla with winds at one point reaching 14 knots, pushing Diana east. …

At this time, 1:00am EDT, we believe that the worst of the storm has moved past them and it is starting to settle down, though they are still experiencing moderate rainfall. Diana is in good spirits and is feeling strong. There have been no jellyfish sightings. The GPS tracker shows they have resumed their heading north towards Key West at a good pace.

Here is a video from earlier last night
