HONOLULU (CBS) – The first storm in a one-two punch that sent Hawaii scrambling to brace itself was rapidly weakening on its approach to the state, while a second system close behind it strengthened and was on track to pass north of the islands.

The National Weather Service downgraded Iselle to a tropical storm about 50 miles before it was expected to make landfall early Friday in the southern part of Hawaii’s Big Island.

Wind and rain from the system still had enough force to knock down trees, cause power outages and block roads on the Big Island. No deaths or major injuries were reported. The storm is expected to inundate Hawaii with 5 to 8 inches of rain, with up to a foot of rain in some spots.
