HONOLULU (KHNL) - Some good news tonight, Hurricane Fossie has been downgraded to a category 1 storm. The winds have come down to about 85 mph sustained, the system passing about 95 miles south of South Point about 9:00 PM Tuesday night.
Flossie is still undergoing some upper-level wind shear, that is also helping to weaken the storm. It's been a slow mover throughout the day, that's why it has been pretty quiet for the east side of the island of Hawaii. It was moving at about 8 miles-per hour.
