Hawaii bracing for rain, wind, surf impacts from major Hurricane Douglas

A member of Indiana Task Force 1 is headed to Hawaii ahead of Hurricane Douglas.

The storm was about 185 miles east of Honolulu, moving west-north-west at 16mph. The National Weather Service warned Sunday morning that the wind threat to Maui and Kauai, in particular, have increased from previous forecasts. The hurricane was packing maximum sustained winds of 150 km/h Sunday.

Luke Meyers, the administrator of the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, urged people get ready for Hurricane Douglas by learning about the hazards where they live.

Key messages on Douglas as it approaches Hawaii on Sunday. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu said the hurricane will continue to weaken as it reaches Hawaii. Hurricane force wind gusts are possible even within the tropical storm warning area. Kauai and Maui were also placed under warning status, while a hurricane watch was canceled for the Big Island.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 30 miles from the center of the storm, and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 90 miles.

The breakthrough on testing money was key after days of debate between Republicans and the White House. Economists largely agreed that the payroll tax cut would do little to help the economy .


"We know that it is weakening as it approaches, but it still will have significant impact on each island", Hawaii Gov. David Ige said at a Saturday news conference.

Maui officials said in a release that they will assess damage from the storm Monday.

Residents of the islands are grappling with escalating numbers of coronavirus cases as the storm bears down. City officials have taken covid-19 precautions, such as providing for social distancing. Also of extreme value is the fact that the low-level center is south of the apparent center seen in conventional satellite imagery, and closer to the islands than might be otherwise expected. It can hold up to 1,600 people with covid-19 precautions in place. Tropical Storm conditions are imminent across the Big Island.

Oahu, home to the state's largest city, Honolulu, was placed under a hurricane warning with the storm beginning to impact the island as early as late morning.

Hawaii has suffered from only two landfalling hurricanes since 1959 - so the news that Douglas is due to hit shores in obviously worrying for the local population. Waves will build today, along with deadly rip currents. Heavy rains with potential flash flooding, strong, damaging, and shifting winds will accompany Douglas. The worst wind impacts probably focus on the northern and leeward parts of the island. Maximum wind speeds still are expected to be in the 75 to 80 miles per hour range.

Right now, forecasters said that what is important is not to focus on the center of the forecast track. Small shifts can matter a lot.

In 2018, Hurricane Lane came toward the state as a Category 5 storm and dumped more than 50 inches of rain on the Big Island, which is mostly rural.

Hawaii's location near cooler sea-surface temperatures has historically protected it from anything but the rare hurricane strike.
