Tropical Storm Felicia Breezes By With Few Impacts

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

National Park News

The tropical storm watch issued for all Hawaiian Islands was discontinued on Tuesday as Felicia’s winds diminished and it passed through the area with few impacts. All backcountry trails and campsites within Hawai'i Volcanoes – closed Sunday due to the storm threat – reopened late on Tuesday morning. Volunteers returned to coastal beaches to resume round-the-clock monitoring of nesting endangered Hawksbill turtles. The surf was the only thing that developed on Hawai‘i Island, but not at the predicted heights and no damage was sustained. Felicia was a good "drill" for the park and its employees, a reminder that hurricane season in Hawai‘i continues through November 30th. The National Weather Service is tracking several more systems in the eastern Pacific that may turn into tropical cyclones.
