Flossie bears down on Hawaii as Dean forms in Atlantic
As we've said in the past - it's hurricane season and they've just spotted two big ones - Flossie and Dean. Good luck to all involved - we'll be watching.
Hurricane Flossie inched closer to Hawaii on Tuesday, bringing with it 110 mph winds, pounding surf, potential floods and prompting state officials to declare a state of emergency for the Big Island.
On the opposite side of North America, Tropical Storm Dean formed in the eastern Atlantic Ocean and is expected to become the first Atlantic hurricane of the season as it swirls toward the Lesser Antilles and Puerto Rico. Dean is expected to reach hurricane status later this week.
Meanwhile, Hurricane Flossie was moving at 13 mph west-northwest through the Pacific Ocean at about 5 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) Tuesday, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu.
