Another storm has slowed Diana Nyad as she enters the fourth day of her attempt to swim across the Straits of Florida.
According to the Nyad's blog, the swimmer and her team found themselves in the midst of the storm around 1:45 a.m. Tuesday. The blog post says everyone is safe but they're having to wait out the storm.
Nyad had been expected to arrive somewhere in the Florida Keys early Tuesday, but her team said she "lost six hours progress" in overnight storms Sunday.
Nyad was about 55 miles (88 kilometers) off the coast of Key West early Tuesday.
Nyad turns 63 on Wednesday and is making her third attempt since last summer to become the first person to swim from Cuba to Florida without a shark cage.
