HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Madeline continues to weaken and is now a tropical depression southwest of the Hawaiian islands.

At 11 a.m. Friday, Madeline’s maximum sustained winds were near 30 miles per hour. The storm is expected to become a post-tropical remnant low by Friday.

Madeline was about 515 miles southwest of Honolulu, and was moving toward the west at 17 miles per hour.

On Wednesday, the storm pounded the Big Island as a tropical storm with high surf and strong winds, knocking out power to hundreds of customers and causing flooding in some areas.

Throughout the day on Wednesday, Madeline was being felt across Hawaii Island. As many as 1,000 people lost power on Hawaii Island on Wednesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, heavy rains and flooding were being seen in some communities, and the National Weather Service reported winds topping 60 mph across the island. Kamuela Airport saw 43 mph winds gusting to 51 mph. Volcano was reporting 45 mph winds with higher gusts, and gusts to 60 mph were recorded near the Kohala mountains upslope from Kawaihae.
