Hawaii County Civil Defense Message – Bus Service to Resume Operations at 7:30 Tonight

Tropical Storm Flossie has been downgraded to a Tropical Depression and is presently located approximately 145 miles Northwest of Hilo.



Although storm conditions have subsided and continue to improve presently, the Kailua Kona area continues to experience strong winds and moderate rain conditions are being reported.

With the improvement in conditions the Mass Transit Bus Service will resume operations effective 7:30 PM tonight with the Hilo to South Kohala Resort route, and return to a normal full schedule beginning tomorrow morning.

In addition, all County parks and beach parks will be opened and scheduled solid waste transfer stations and the Hilo and Puuanahulu Landfills will be reopened starting tomorrow morning. Although the impact of Tropical Storm Flossie may have been relatively moderate, the potential for serious and possibly life threatening storm conditions was present.

The Hawaii County Civil Defense would like to thank the community for your patience and cooperation and for doing your part to prepare for possible impact.
