Tropical Flossie is moving closer to Hawaii. It will move over the islands Monday with tropical storm force winds. The islands are bracing for those strong winds and heavy rain to persist during the day Monday. (The latest advisory from the Central Pacific Hurricane Center is below)
The Pacific Hurricanes have a totally different list of names than the hurricanes in the Atlantic basin. This is the sixth named storm in the Pacific so far this year. The Atlantic has had 4 named storms so far. That might clear up any confusion as to why we were just talking about Dorian in the Atlantic, and now Flossie in the Pacific. Some folks have asked what happened to the "E" named storm. We haven't had an "E" named storm in the Atlantic yet. When we do, it will be Erin. The "E" name in the Pacific was Erick.
