True, but there are four hurricane specialists, so you'd think they'd rotate them around one doing one ever six hours. Granted, they likely don't want their employees driving during a tropical storm.

Oh I can guarantee at least 3 of the 4 are there are all times. Between doing local NWS duties and making the advisory packages, all of them are busy. Maybe this is how they decided to split the duties up.

You can see the rotation west of the big island on visible easily.

With that center relocation, could it re-intensify again SW of Hawaii if convection develops on the LLC?

Yeah, the center (LLC) is well west of the convection. I don't think Iselle qualifies as a TD/TS any longer. Looks like a remnant low. Some stronger winds in higher elevations, but that's about it.

Iselle looks like it's history. No regeneration. Torn apart by shear.

Here's a visible satellite. I've identified the broad LLC with yellow arrows. Location of the recent recon dropsonde is on the eastern edge of the LLC. Reported 1010mb with mean wind of about 12 kts during the descent.

You mean the shear of two bulky, 14,000' mountains. Don't discount the role that played. It's questionable whether a storm of this diameter, even under perfect conditions, would have made it across.

Major tree damage has occurred in Hawaii. A house was torn off its foundation.

Persistent heavy rain still coming down on the southern windward side of the Big Island, mudslides should be a major problem there.

A video. Caused by storm surge apparently.

My daughter lives on the windward side of Oahu in Kaneohe. So far, so good there. She's cooking bacon and eggs for breakfast as I type. :D As of 9:45am HST, that is - conditions may deteriorate later, but she said all they have so far is a lil bit of wind and some rain.

Many homes in Hawaii are not built very strong. In fact, the structures may be weaker than mobile homes here. Probably no secure connections between walls and foundation/roof. They just don't get much wind over there. It doesn't take much wind to cause significant structural damage. I bet it would be hard to find an occurrence of 40+ mph sustained wind on the Big Island (lower elevations) in the last few decades.
