Tropical Storm Iselle Floods Hawaii

Downgraded from a hurricane, Tropical Storm Iselle will bring heavy rain and damaging winds to Hawaii today.

The Big Island was put under a hurricane warning, the first since 1993.

Iselle will continue moving west, dropping large amounts of rain on Maui and The Big Island, as well as rain for the rest of the state.

The tropical storm will make its exit later today, but another hurricane could threaten the state.

Hurricane Julio strengthened to a major hurricane with winds at 120 mph sustained.

The track of Julio takes the hurricane north of Hawaii on Sunday, but the forecast path should be monitored.

Tropical Storm Bertha Forms in the Atlantic

Last night, the low pressure being monitored for the past several days developed into the second tropical storm of the Atlantic hurricane season, Tropical Storm Bertha.

Bertha will reach Barbados and the Lesser Antilles through today and could bring as much as 6" of rain for the Leeward Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands today and tomorrow.

The forecast track brings the path of Bertha close to the US mainland before turning the storm before making landfall.
