Tropical Storm Flossie Weakens After Hitting Hawaii

No longer even considered a tropical depression


Flossie, the storm that whipped Hawaii on late Monday, has weakened, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center said.

After spreading torrential rain and causing scattered power outages across the island chain, the storm is no longer a tropical depression. It is now classified as a remnant area of low pressure.

Earlier, the National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for Maui, and flash flood watches covered the rest of the state.
