Brian Miyamoto, spokesman for Hawaii State Civil Defense, speaks about preparations for Tropical Storm Flossie during a news conference in Honolulu on Monday, July 29, 2013. A tropical storm making its way toward Hawaii had residents of Maui and the Big Island on Monday bracing for possible flooding, 60 mph wind gusts and waves that could reach as high as 18 feet. Tropical Storm Flossie could also bring mudslides, tornadoes and waterspouts, forecasters said. (AP Photo/Oskar Garcia)
