Daniel's remnants to bring some wind, rain; Hurricane Emilia expected to weaken

By Star-Advertiser & Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 06:32 p.m. HST, Jul 12, 2012


What's left of former hurricane Daniel is bringing high surf to the east shores of Hawaii island and is expected to bring stronger tradewinds to all islands and rain to Hawaii island starting tonight, the National Weather Service said.

It is one of three storms formed in the Eastern Pacific that forecasters are watching but say should not threaten the islands.

Daniel — now a remnant low-pressure system — was about 530 miles east-southeast of Hilo Thursday evening and should pass south of the islands by Saturday.

Waves generated by Daniel led the National Weather Service to issue a high surf advisory for the east shores of the Big Island. Surf there was 6 to 9 feet, with possible bigger sets, forecasters said. The advisory remains in effect through 6 p.m. Friday. 

The Central Pacific Hurricane Center has stopped issuing advisories on Daniel and forecasters said there is no chance of it becoming a tropical cyclone again.

Next up is Hurricane Emilia which is centered about 1,025 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California and is moving west toward at 12 mph. Emilia, as of Thursday evening, was packing maximum sustained winds of 85 mph.

Like Daniel, the storm is weakening as it moves over cooler waters and is expected to be another remnant low-pressure system when it reaches the Central Pacific early next week.

Further east, Tropical Storm Fabio is strengthening in the Pacific and could become a hurricane Friday.

The National Hurricane Center in Miami says the new storm's maximum sustained winds were 60 mph Thursday evening.

Fabio's center was about 470 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico, and is moving west at 10 mph.

While it is projected to be a hurricane Friday and Saturday, Fabio is also expected to move north over cooler waters, and weaken to a tropical depression far from Mexico's coast by Tuesday.

What is SDS? Really, what year was that? I took ROTC in high school for my sophomore and junior years. And to think that we think of Tom Berg with his antics. Neil however is too smooth of a mainland talker (in Japanese, we call that shaberu, or talk too much). I wish he would shave off his face lol, and get a haircut.

I presume your comment was sent for approval. I always thought that if one swore, one would get sent for approval. Not the usual case though. If one challenges those posh writers at the Waterfront offices or whatever they are called, then one gets sent to Kirisu.

This is the wakeup call, the first hurricane of the season, even if we probably won't get anything but a few showers. Time to make sure your emergency kits and other preparations are ready to go, just in case.

Costco might still have some emergency food kits (220 freeze dried meals) in a sealed 5 gal bucket. They are CHEAP!!! ($67) other brands are over $100-$150 plus another $30 shipping. They only carry it once or twice a year and they are almost out.

Its a kinder gentler way of saying, yes it is a hurricane and its is tracking our way but its kind of far right now and dont panic but be aware and be prepared. You know all those fools who wait till the storm is on your doorstep and then panicking to go fill gas and buy water.

Ok everyone, Lets all panic and make the toilet paper and rice raids at Costco. Hurry up, get them while you can.

Nah, have been buying one thing from Costco (soup, water, extra toilet paper, etc) once every couple of months to sock away for my now pretty decent hurricane supplies. I just cycle stuff out to keep it fresh. I've also been buying the Kirkland laundry soap in the square buckets. When the soap is gone I wash them out, paint them white (so I can label the contents), and save them for weather resistant storage buckets for stuff like soap, batteries, TP, medical supplies. I like the square shape because it takes up less space in the closet. Now if I have to evac loading up the car will be super fast.

I for one found this information useful. I can expect rain and wind next week. I don't know what the hell everyone else is complaining about.

the headline says "will" bring rain whereas the National Weather Service, in the first paragraph, says "could" bring rain. Does the SA know something the NWS doesn't know? What is the NWS trying to hide? What does the SA know and when did they know it? This has conspiracy written all over it. I smell a Congressional investigation coming.

Emilia is still strong. I was out near the blowhole scenic site two days ago and i talked to a couple from Long Island, New York. I had mentioned to them that it was very dangerous with those seemingly 35 MPH winds swirling about. I mentioned to them that it was unusual for winds as strong as that, however i was not aware that there was Amelia Earhart swirling about nearby. Now I know. There was something wrong with that paragraph above. Would anyone like to guess what it is? This is an English Quiz. If u get it right, I will stop bothering u about the Internet, lol.
