All Big Island Public schools will be closed on Tuesday for Hurricane Flossie.
All Big Island Wal-Marts are now open for 24 hours.
The Big Island is expected to get hit the hardest by Flossie. It has been downgraded to a Category 3. Hurricane experts were counting on the cooler waters in the pacific to significantly weaken Flossie, but she has so far been indifferent to the weather.
