Incorrect map name for Hemsedal, Norway

  • Hi!

    This is an issue that has been bugging me for a while - Hemsedal is incorrectly labeled as 'Форель' on the wind overlay map. If you zoom in enough to see the terrain details, the correct name 'Hemsedal' appears. I've had a look at OpenStreetMap, and according to their search function there is no match for 'Форель' in Norway.

    Here's the location URL:,8.570,11

    The issue persist on Firefox 75.0, Chrome 84.0.4044.138, and the Windy-app on Android (version 24.0004).
    I've tried switching between different languages (English, Norwegian ++), but that doesn't seem to make any difference.

    Maybe because Russian noun "Форель" means "trout" and a priori there are many trouts in Hemsedal rivers (thus many tourists would search Hemsedal for fishing :o)))
