Hurricane John in 1994.

The strongest hurricane to ever threaten Hawaii is bearing down on the islands as a Category 5 storm. A hurricane watch was in effect for Oahu and Kauai.

WHEREAS, Chapter 127A Hawaii Revised Statutes, provides for the establishment of County organizations for emergency management and disaster relief with the Mayor having direct responsibility and authority over emergency management within the County. All county offices are scheduled to be open today.

Lane's expected track brings the storm very close to the islands, and potential interaction with mountainous islands keeps a level of uncertainty in the forecast.

Lane has maximum winds of 150 mph (240 km/h) and is about 450 miles (725 km) southeast of Hawaii's big island.

The storm is now moving westward at 12 miles per hour (19 km/h) and should continue to move west through tonight.

But the hurricane centre said the storm will move very close to or over the islands from Thursday through Saturday.

Preparations there are now being rushed to completion as tropical-storm force winds are forecast to arrive in the warning area by late Wednesday or early Thursday.

Bryce and Dom Boeder of Waimea, Kauai, load their truck with storm supplies in the parking lot of a Walmart store in Lihue, on the island of Kauai, Hawaii, Tuesday, Aug. 21, 2018. Rainfall accumulations are expected to be around 4 to 8 inches with locally higher amounts, he said. But they do forecast the storm to run parallel to the entire island chain, potentially sideswiping it with a formidable blow from both water and wind.

The weather service said tropical-storm-force winds could begin as early as Wednesday afternoon or evening on the Big Island.

A hurricane warning means that hurricane conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area.

"Please take this threat seriously and hopefully when this is over you can say, 'ha, we did all that for nothing, '" Kim said. These conditions will likely lead to periods of hazardous flash flooding threatening all islands.

Flash flooding and landslides are also expected in the state along with 10 to 15 inches of rain. "Every time a hurricane coming, everyone's running through preparing".

A high surf warning has also been issued for Hawaii with waves up to 25 feet. Notice how they are largely clustered to the south and southeast of the state. A storm surge of up to 4 feet in anticipated.
