Iselle: Updates for Aug. 22, 2014

HELCO has completed repairs to all of the major damage Tropical Storm Iselle caused to the electric system in subdivisions in the Puna District. Electric line crews today are focused on a number of smaller outages, each affecting small pockets of customers.

On August 5 2014, the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) sensor on Suomi-NPP captured natural-color images of both Iselle and Hurricane Julio en route to Hawaii. The image above is a composite of three satellite passes over the tropical Pacific Ocean in the early afternoon. Note that Iselle’s eyewall had grown less distinct; the storm had descreased to category 2 intensity. The bright shading toward the center-left of the image is sunglint, the reflection of sunlight off the water and directly back at the satellite sensor.
