Erick Almost Gone, Flossie Weakens As It Approaches Hawaii

Our last report on Erick, which has passed Hawaii and is barely a tropical storm. Flossie may come closer to Hawaii than earlier forecasts indicated.

Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts. Erick is expected to weaken to a tropical depression later today or tonight, then become a post-tropical cyclone on Sunday.

Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 45 miles (75 km) from the center.
