Tropical Storm Flossie would be the first storm to impact Hawaii of the season, bringing wind and rain to the island state.

The storm that would become Flossie was first noted as a Tropical Depression by the National Hurricane Center on July 24th, 2013. It weakened into a Tropical Storm early the next morning.

Forecasted projections took the storms over the Hawaiian islands as a Tropical Storm. Thusly, Watches and Warnings were placed into effect.

According to affiliate KGMB, Governor Neil Abercrombie declared a state of emergency in advance of the storm.

As the storm drew closer, it weakened slightly and would eventually impact the islands mainly as a Tropical Depression.

Still, the storm brought lightning and thunder as well as knocking out power to thousands on multiple islands across the state. Ports were closed and flights were delayed as well.

By July 30th, the storm was only a remnant low as it broke apart in the Central Pacific.
