Fireball Still Following the Classic Coastal route

Fireball is gradually moving up the coast of Peru and covered 224 km (139 miles) yesterday. He left the Trujillo area, passed by Pacasmayo and Chiclayo and is now in Lambayeque Department.

The GE coverage here is fairly poor in resolution but he roosted about 3 miles inland from the coast.

Oddly enough, I was just checking out an article on surfing in Peru and this is one of the areas undergoing an explosion of the sport among Peruvian youth. Inspired in part by a world class Peruvian woman surfer, "La Gringa", the beaches of northern Peru are now one of the centers of the sport in South America.

Who would have thought......?
