Flossie Leaving Hawaii Weaker Than When Storm Came

Flossie's Hawaiian adventure: Short, scattered and more powerful than many believed it would be at first.

National Weather Service officials say the tropical depression is expected to exit Hawaii on Tuesday as a weakened version of the storm that prompted school and court closures and an emergency declaration from Gov. Neil Abercrombie before hitting shore.

But hours after surfers caught waves on the Big Island and tourists sunbathed despite showers and overcast skies in Waikiki, Flossie made its mark on the state with widespread thunder and lightning, heavy rain and winds that knocked out power to thousands on several islands.

Maui County officials said Monday night that widespread power outages are affecting water service on many parts of Maui and Molokai, with no estimate of when power will be restored.
