A graphic created by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center illustrates how lucky Hawaii has been so far in a record-breaking tropical cyclone season.
The graphic, created by hurricane specialist Kevin Kodama, combines infrared images from each of the 15 tropical cyclones that entered the Central Pacific from June 1 until now.
The storms form a lei, swirling around the islands. But none of the storms made a direct hit.
“I think it shows we were extremely lucky this season,” said Bob Ballard, the science and operations officer at the Central Pacific Hurricane Center.
