The National Weather Service issued a hurricane warning for Hawaiian offshore waters that will kick up winds and surf and produce scattered thunderstorms. Erick continued to weaken but remains a category 2 hurricane producing maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour, according to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center on Wednesday. Flossie also weakened to a tropical storm, but could regain strength later in the week.
