This is Hawaii County Civil Defense with a Tropical Depression Flossie update message for Sunday, August 4 at 6 in the evening.

The Central Pacific Hurricane Center has downgraded Flossie to a tropical depression with maximum sustained winds of 35 MPH.  At 5 PM, the center of Flossie was approximately 350 miles east of Hilo moving west at 13 miles per hour.


The Central Pacific Hurricane Center High Surf Warning for east facing shores of Hawaii Island remains in effect through Monday.  A High Surf Warning means large breaking surf, significant shore break, and dangerous currents that could cause significant injury or death.


The following public safety measures are in effect;

  • Onekahakaha Beach Park remains closed through today due to dangerous surf conditions.
  • Camping permits and pavilion rentals for Onekahakaha, Whittington, and Punaluu Beach Parks are cancelled for today.
  • The Bayfront Parking lot on Kamehameha Avenue will remain closed until further notice.
  • The Hele-On buses will continue to pick-up passengers behind the Afook-Chinen Civic Auditorium.

As Tropical Depression Flossie nears Hawaii Island, please be prepared for conditions of heavy rain and possible flooding, especially for the windward side of Hawaii Island beginning early morning Monday.
