Hawaii braces for Category 5 Hurricane Lane

  • Hurricane Lane strengthens to Category 5 storm as it nears Hawaii

The storm was traveling west-northwest at 9 miles per hour with 160 miles per hour maximum sustained winds.

State offices on Hawaii Island and Maui will be closed Wednesday through Friday, as the governor announced that nonessential state employees in the two counties will be put on administrative leave.

But the agency cautioned, "Lane is forecast to remain a risky hurricane as it draws closer to the Hawaiian Islands".

The most powerful storm on record hitting Hawaii was Hurricane Iniki, a Category 4 that made landfall on Kauai island on September 11, 1992, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Hurricane-force winds are reaching up to 40 miles out from the center of the storm and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles.

Hurricane Lane weakened slightly overnight but continues its march toward the islands. Tropical storm conditions are possible within the Hurricane Watch area beginning Thursday into Thursday night, with hurricane conditions possible late Thursday night into Friday.

'This is expected to result in very heavy rainfall, potentially leading to flash flooding'.

Maui County and Big Island schools will be closed starting Wednesday, the state Department of Education said.

West Hawaii could begin to feel the effects of Hurricane Lane as early as this evening as the powerful storm closes in on the state.

Palij's USA citizenship was revoked in August 2003 based on his alleged involvement in war crimes and his immigration fraud. The resident of the Queens borough of NY was arrested Monday and deported to Germany early Tuesday, according to the U.S.

But forecast models are indicating that Lane will turn in a more northerly direction by Wednesday, which will bring the center of Lane very close to Hawaii and Maui counties on Thursday, the Hurricane Center said.

Heavy rain is moving into New England on Wednesday morning. Even close calls are somewhat rare, with Hawaii getting a named storm within 60 miles of its coastline about once every four years on average. It is too early to predict which, if any, of the islands are directly impacted. "Regardless of the exact track of the center, life threatening impacts are likely in some areas as the hurricane makes its closest approach".

Ige signed an emergency proclamation Tuesday that will provide relief for disaster damages, losses and suffering caused by Hurricane Lane.

"A lot of people are comparing the similarities between Iniki and Lane", he said. Deep tropical moisture associated with Lane will spread across all islands. They then placed the hurricane in category 5, the highest category a hurricane can be given.
