Erick is moving toward the west-northwest near 15 miles per hour (24 kph), and this general motion is expected to continue over the next couple of days. Infrared imagery reveals cloud top temperatures, and the higher the cloud top, the colder it is, and the stronger the storm.

While Erick is expected to miss Hawaii, current tracking has Flossie hitting the island chain in some manner early next week, though it's still unclear how hard it could get hit.

According to the NWS, Hurricane Erick will weaken as it approaches the island State from the east, however, wet conditions will spread from east to west across all the islands from tomorrow into the weekend.

Since forming in the wake of Erick, Flossie has also gained strength by passing through the same area of the Pacific Erick has.

But consumer groups have strongly backed the idea, arguing that it will pressure USA drugmakers to reduce their prices. Eyeing his reelection campaign, Trump has made lowering prescription drug prices one of his top priorities.

Although forecast to pass south of the islands, Erick could still deliver high surf along east-facing shores, heavy rain and flash flooding and heavy trade winds, the hurricane center and county officials said Wednesday. A tropical storm warning also covers Big Island's leeward and southeast waters. Rainfall up to 8 inches is possible, the weather service said.

It is forecast to skirt south of the Big Island on Friday morning.

Flossie remains at tropical storm strength as of 5 a.m. Thursday with maximum sustained winds of 65 miles per hour. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 25 miles (35 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 105 miles (165 km).

Hurricane Flossie, on the other hand, is expected to upgrade to a category-two storm by Friday.
