Pingo: The Whimbrel Around the Tropical Storm Isaac

Written by Fletcher M Smith

Pingo, the Whimbrel has striked around the Tropical Storm Isaac and is likely headed for either French Guiana or Brazil. As of 22 August at 11PM (Eastern time) the bird was 300 miles from landfall. The Whimbrel was averaging 35mph before hitting the storm, and averaged 25mph after, so the storm only had a minor effect on the flight speed and bearing.
