INFOGRAPHIC: Is Iselle an Outlier From Historical Storms?

Iselle made history during Friday morning, as the system made landfall as a strong tropical storm on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Even though Iselle will gradually weaken as it approaches and passes through the islands of Hawaii Friday and Saturday, it will bring a threat to lives and property. Iselle will bring the risk of flooding, strong winds, power outages and pounding surf to many of the Hawaiian Islands.

People are encouraged to prepare for Iselle's arrival in advance and heed local advisories and restrictions.

Data on the tropical depressions, storm and hurricanes per decade is valid through August 6, 2014.

While Julio is following Iselle in the Pacific a few days later, the system is forecast to swing north of Hawaii with much less impact.
