BATON ROUGE - The Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness says they are no longer sending a two-person team to Hawaii to help with storm conditions.

GOHSEP says conditions have improved enough to where Hawaii has withdrawn it's request for help from Louisiana.

Initially, Hawaii had asked for help from the Emergency Management Assistance Compact because of the two storms hitting the state. Louisiana was getting set to send a two-person team to Hawaii this weekend for 14 days.

Tropical storm Iselle made landfall Friday, and Hurricane Julio is now expected to miss Hawaii to the north.
