Re: Rarely Seen Incredibly Active Pacific: Hurricane Iselle & Hawaii

As long as it and likely Julio are a threat to Hawaii, I'll cover it over on Facebook; keep an eye on Iselle; she's what we call an Annular or Axisymetric Hurricane...think of it as truck tire or doughnut in appearance; these systems have a way of holding on to intensity due to some rather non-tropical mechanism alongside tropical ones; she's a thing of beauty on satellite and almost perfectly round.
