Hurricane Lane's Hawaii Strike Reminds Locals of 1992's Iniki

DFA tells Filipinos in Hawaii to brace for ‘Hurricane Lane’

Hurricane Lane's outer bands have been pummeling Hawaii's Big Island with rain Thursday morning, triggering landslides and threatening serious flooding as the Category 4 cyclone moves perilously close to the Aloha State. Luckily for Hawaii, most of those typhoons form in the Pacific and gain strength while moving west, hitting Australia and east Asia, sparing the Aloha State from the megastorms.

In Maui County, damaging tropical storm-force winds could begin late Thursday and risky hurricane-force winds Thursday night and early Friday.

There is chaos in Hawaii as the islands brace themselves for impact.

As of Thursday afternoon, Hurricane Lane was a category 4 storm, with sustained winds of about 130 miles per hour.

Long advised that forecasters are predicting 30 inches of rain in some parts of Hawaii.

Though the path isn't certain, Hawaii is expecting torrential rain the next few days, potentially causing life-threatening flash floods and landslides.

Buses in Honolulu have been shuttling residents in need to shelters.

Hurricane Lane is bearing down on Hawaii with 130 miles per hour winds and is expected to track very close to the islands Thursday and Friday.

Local Hawaiian officials are urging island residents to be prepared for the absolute worst, and the locals have been heeding the warnings.

Warnings have been posted for the Big Island and Maui, and the effects of Lane are expected to be felt starting Wednesday night.

FEMA says the agency has been talking with grocers to make sure food sources are stocked. "I've not seen such dramatic changes in the forecast track as I've seen with this storm". A couple of tropical storms have also hit the islands, including Iselle in 2014.

The massive storm is carrying with it 150-mile per hour winds and is one of the strongest to ever to come this close to the islands. It was expected to begin a turn toward the northwest of the island later on Wednesday, followed by a turn to the north-northwest on Thursday.

Police say avoid Kaalaiki Road, closed due to flooding, just above Na'alehu town in Ka'u.

Members of the Alapahoe outrigger canoe club move their canoes off the beach to higher ground as Hurricane Lane approaches Honolulu, Hawaii.

Puaoi said Home Depot opened at 6 a.m., and employees reported there was already a line around the building.

"Drivers and persons on foot are reminded do not cross fast flow water".

Governor Ige also stated that US President Donald Trump approved a request for emergency aid, allowing the region to have access to federal resources for restoration.

Through Saturday, 10-15 inches of rain are generally expected, with isolated amounts greater than 20 inches, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center said.
