Erick Bringing Winds, Rain, Surf Even As It Weakens

Erick Bringing Winds, Rain, Surf Even As It Weakens

They said: "At 500 PM HST (0300 UTC), the centre of Hurricane Erick was located near latitude 12.7 North, longitude 140.0 West".

"Impacts such as higher surf, strong winds or heavy rainfall are possible even with this tropical system passing south of the Big Island", the National Weather Service in Honolulu told USA Today. Daily operational briefings with federal, state, county and nongovernmental agencies continue to be held with the Governor's Office, Mayor Michael Victorino and National Weather Service.

"Strong swells are expected to cause risky surf along the eastern and southern Hawaii coast over the next 48-72 hours but no coastal advisories are now issued for the Hawaiian island chain", Brink stated.

Spotify slips after not adding as many paid subscribers as hoped
In comparison, Spotify had earlier forecast monthly active users within the range of 222 million to 228 million. Since last quarter, all these factors have pressed its average revenue per user to €4.86 ($5.42) - down 1%.


High winds are a big part of the storm, with expected sustained gusts to reach 110 miles per hour - that's only one mile below a Category 3 hurricane CNN Meteorologist Haley Brink said. "These additional local island-by-island impacts are highly dependent upon the size, intensity, and track of Erick as it moves through the Hawaii region".

Fortunately, Erick is a small hurricane and the National Hurricane Center expects those winds to be 200 miles from Hawaii as it passes the islands.

A second tropical depression is now southwest of Mexico and is expected to become a tropical storm named Flossie later on Monday. This has allowed it to quickly grow to a Cat 1 Hurricane after only a few days. It may re-strengthen and then weaken again before getting closer to Hawaii. "We are fairly confident that another round of tropical humid weather with active showers will develop over Hawaii for the first half of next week".
