It looks as if Hawaii is in the clear

HONOLULU (INTELLIHUB) — Collateral damage from the already passed tropical storm Iselle was minimal, reports say, despite the fact that at least one person was killed during the surge.

A second storm, hurricane Julio, is expected to make its way north of the Hawaiian Islands Sunday.

The Wall Street Journal reported via the AP:

Hurricane Julio weakened Sunday as it neared Hawaii, where a rural swath of the Big Island was still coping with power outages and downed trees in the wake of Tropical Storm Iselle.

On the island of Kauai, rescuers found the body of a 19-year-old woman believed to have been swept away while hiking Friday in a closed state park during a tropical storm warning.

Julio, which was downgraded to the least powerful Category 1 level, was expected to pass roughly 250 miles (400 kilometers) northeast of Maui on Sunday and linger near the state into Monday. Sam Houston, a forecaster with the National Weather Service, said Julio’s winds have weakened to about 90 mph.
