    Default Flossie coming to Big Island

    Just thought I would let you know that last night we had a 5.3 magnitude earthquake with no reports of major damage and today we are going to be hit by hurricane Flossie (hopefully not a direct hit) but expected rains of 10 to 12 inches with possible flooding. It is almost 6 AM and very weird. The calm before the storm. Very quite and you wouldn't even know that a hurricane is on the way today. I will keep you updated if the internet keeps working. I live on the south end of the Big Island and my apartment is about three miles inland but we can see the ocean.

    Here is a photo from space:

    Thanks countchocula,

    Flossie has been downgraded to a Category 1 by 10 PM HST and it looks
    like it will miss the Big Island. Very little rain so far and hardly any wind. So everything looks like we are going to be fine.
