It's clean-up time in Hawaii. As the clouds move west and the winds die down, residents are back on the streets. They're assessing the damage from Tropical Storm Iselle. Officials in Honolulu were grateful there were no major injuries and damages. (SOUNDBITE) (English) HAWAII GOVERNOR NEIL ABERCROMBIE SAYING: "Because we were confident, confident that we put together a game plan that was going to work, that we'd practiced, that we'd planned, that we were certainly prepared to weather the storm." Still, the state is not yet in the clear. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MIKE CANTIN, NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, SAYING: "Next on tap is Hurricane Julio, which still is packing winds of about 100 miles per hour." Although Julio was downgraded to a Category 2 storm Friday, there's still a chance its path and strength could change. (SOUNDBITE) (English) MIKE CANTIN, NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE, SAYING: "The caveat here is that any change in that track, if it happens to track not much further south than we're expecting, because we're within 48 hours with the arrival of that system or near the state, that would trigger the need for a watch or a warning, whether a hurricane or a tropical storm." Julio is expected to pass early Sunday.
