Jimena Weakens Into Tropical Storm

September 02, 2003|From Times Wire Reports

Hurricane Jimena weakened and was downgraded to a tropical storm, missing the Hawaiian Islands but still causing high surf and heavy rain.

The Central Pacific Hurricane Center lifted the hurricane watch for Hawaii.

Still, surf was running 8 to 12 feet high and heavy rain put a damper on Labor Day beach plans along eastern and southern shores of the Big Island. Beaches remained closed Monday because of rough waves and rip currents.
