Hawaii My Be Hit By Big Storm
Hawaii is bracing for a possible hit by Hurricane Flossie which is churning about 1200 miles east of the state near the Central Pacific Ocean. Forecasters currently predict that the storm may weaken as it travels over cooler waters and that its track should have it pass a few hundred miles south of the state. Winds are currently clocking in at 115 mph.
State civil defense is preparing for the worst and urges residents to also prepare with their hurricane kits.
Hopefully this storm will weaken to a tropical storm. Hawaii has been in a drought situation for most of this year, and we definitely need some rain. The rain would be okay, not the strong damaging winds. So like if a storm with winds of 40 mph or less hits with plenty of rain, it may be a good thing.
