Flossie Disappears after Short Show North of Hawaii
Tropical storm FLOSSIE came out of the gate making forecasters think that it would be the storm of the year for the Pacific. But during the entire life of Flossie, the storm was fighting upper level winds that would eventually throw if off course and eventually break it apart. Flossie originally was heading straight to Hawaii, but when it finally arrived in the area, it strayed to the north of the islands and provided some winds and rains to the islands. The storm rolls through Hawaii on Monday and lasted merely a day. There are no reported fatalities or major injuries from the storm. As it passed through the islands on Tuesday, the storm no longer had its well defined center or any type of organization. Eventually the storm diminished. Flossie is gone.
