Debbie May Get In The Way Of Penny

Debbie May Get In The Way Of Penny

As ultra-marathon swimmer Penny Palfrey gets ready for her 103-mile attempt from Cuba to Florida, Tropical Storm Debbie may delay things a bit…and gives a hint to the difficulty of picking the right time for such an attempt.

The storm cluster in the Gulf of Mexico is being tracked across the Caribbean from Mexico to southern Florida and its path will soon be known. If Debbie continues to move east and threaten Florida, it may likely delay the start of her swim.
