Tropical Cyclone Statement issued August 21 at 7:24AM HST by NWS Honolulu HI
This product covers the Hawaiian islands **HURRICANE LANE WILL MAKE A TURN TOWARD THE ISLANDS THIS WEEK AND COULD BE A MAJOR THREAT TO THE STATE** NEW INFORMATION --------------- * CHANGES TO WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - None * CURRENT WATCHES AND WARNINGS: - A Hurricane Watch is in effect for Big Island Interior, Big Island North and East, Big Island Summits, Haleakala Summit, Kahoolawe, Kohala, Kona, Lanai Makai, Lanai Mauka, Leeward Haleakala, Maui Central Valley, Maui Leeward West, Maui Windward West, Molokai Leeward, Molokai Windward, South Big Island, and Windward Haleakala * STORM INFORMATION: - About 620 miles southeast of Honolulu or about 430 miles south-southeast of Hilo - 14.1N 152.3W - Storm Intensity 150 mph - Movement West or 275 degrees at 12 mph SITUATION OVERVIEW ------------------ Hurricane Lane is passing to the south-southeast of the Big Island this morning and is expected to make a turn toward the islands Wednesday into Thursday. The onset of damaging tropical storm force winds on the Big Island could be as early as Wednesday, with dangerous hurricane force winds possible by Wednesday night. On Maui county, damaging tropical storm force winds could begin as early as Wednesday night, with dangerous hurricane force winds possible starting on Thursday. Hurricane Watches may be needed for other areas as Lane draws closer. Bands of intense showers and thunderstorms surrounding Lane will begin to overspread the state from south to north, reaching the Big Island late tonight or Wednesday morning. Excessive rainfall is possible which could lead to major flash flooding, landslides and mudslides. Flooding can occur even in areas not usually prone to flooding. Storm total rainfall amounts greater than 20 inches are possible. Swell generated by Lane could bring very large and rough surf and dangerous rip currents for south and southeast facing shores. Tornadoes and large waterspouts will be possible associated with Lane, mainly along and to the right of the track of the hurricane. POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * WIND: Prepare for life-threatening wind having possible extensive impacts across Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai and the Big Island. Potential impacts in this area include: - Considerable roof damage to sturdy buildings, with some having window, door, and garage door failures leading to structural damage. Mobile homes severely damaged, with some destroyed. Damage accentuated by airborne projectiles. Locations may be uninhabitable for weeks. - Many large trees snapped or uprooted along with fences and roadway signs blown over. - Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban or heavily wooded places. Several bridges, causeways, and access routes impassable. - Large areas with power and communications outages. Also, prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts on Kauai and Niihau. * FLOODING RAIN: Prepare for life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible devastating impacts across the main Hawaiian islands. Potential impacts include: - Extreme rainfall flooding may prompt numerous evacuations and rescues. - Rivers and tributaries may overwhelmingly overflow their banks in many places with deep moving water. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become raging rivers. In mountain areas, deadly runoff may rage down valleys while increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed. - Flood waters can enter numerous structures within multiple communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed away. Numerous places where flood waters may cover escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of raging water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become very dangerous. Numerous road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out. * TORNADOES: Prepare for a tornado event having possible limited impacts on Oahu, Maui, Molokai, Lanai, and Kahoolawe. Potential impacts include: - The occurrence of isolated tornadoes can hinder the execution of emergency plans during tropical events. - A few places may experience tornado damage, along with power and communications disruptions. - Locations could realize roofs peeled off buildings, chimneys toppled, mobile homes pushed off foundations or overturned, large tree tops and branches snapped off, shallow-rooted trees knocked over, moving vehicles blown off roads, and small boats pulled from moorings.

High Surf Advisory issued August 21 at 6:05AM HST expiring August 21 at 6:00PM HST by NWS Honolulu HI
Long-period swells from Hurricane Lane will continue to bring large surf along east facing shores of the Big Island and Maui today. * SURF...6 to 12 feet along east facing shores of the Big Island and Maui, with largest waves expected along the southeast coast of the Big Island. * TIMING...through this evening. * IMPACTS...Moderate...Expect strong breaking waves, shore break, and strong longshore and rip currents making swimming difficult and dangerous.
Flash Flood Watch issued August 21 at 5:39AM HST expiring August 24 at 6:00PM HST by NWS Honolulu HI
As Hurricane Lane approaches the islands from the south, deep tropical moisture associated with Lane will spread across the island chain from the east, with increased potential for heavy rainfall. The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a * Flash Flood Watch for Kahoolawe, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Niihau, Oahu and the Big Island. * From Wednesday morning through Friday afternoon * Abundant moisture from Hurricane Lane is expected to move over the Big Island late Wednesday and spreading to the rest of the islands through Friday. Intense rainfall will be possible, especially along southeast and east facing slopes. The risk of flooding will only increase as Hurricane Lane approaches. * In addition to flood prone areas, heavy rain events of this size may cause flooding in areas outside of designated flood zones. Low spots in roads will become dangerous and impassible due to severe runoff. High amounts of debris in streams and gulches may clog bridges and culverts resulting in dangerous flooding outside the normal channels and significant property damage.

As Lane approaches the Big Island the south through west sections of the island may experience tropical storm conditions with winds 30 mph or greater starting on Wednesday night. Deep tropical moisture associated with Lane will spread across all islands. Expect periods of heavy rainfall, especially along the southeast and east facing slopes. Storm total rainfall amounts of 10 to 15 inches with local amounts greater than 20 inches possible. Swell generated by Lane could bring very large and rough surf and dangerous rip currents for south and southeast facing shores. POTENTIAL IMPACTS ----------------- * WIND: Prepare for hazardous wind having possible limited impacts across the Hawaiian islands. Potential impacts include: - Damage to porches, awnings, carports, sheds, and unanchored mobile homes. Unsecured lightweight objects blown about. - Many large tree limbs broken off. A few trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Some fences and roadway signs blown over. - A few roads impassable from debris, particularly within urban or heavily wooded places. Hazardous driving conditions on bridges and other elevated roadways. - Scattered power and communications outages. * FLOODING RAIN: Prepare for life-threatening rainfall flooding having possible extensive impacts across Maui County and Hawaii County. The highest threat of heavy rainfall and flooding is expected along southeast Big Island. Potential impacts include: - Major rainfall flooding may prompt many evacuations and rescues. - Rivers and tributaries may rapidly overflow their banks in multiple places. Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become dangerous rivers. In mountain areas, destructive runoff may run quickly down valleys while increasing susceptibility to rockslides and mudslides. Flood control systems and barriers may become stressed. - Flood waters can enter many structures within multiple communities, some structures becoming uninhabitable or washed away. Many places where flood waters may cover escape routes. Streets and parking lots become rivers of moving water with underpasses submerged. Driving conditions become dangerous. Many road and bridge closures with some weakened or washed out. Prepare for dangerous rainfall flooding having possible limited to significant impacts across Maui and Hawaii County. * TORNADOES: Little to no impacts are anticipated at this time across the Hawaiian islands. * OTHER COASTAL HAZARDS: Prepare for locally hazardous high surf with coastal impacts along south and southeast facing shores of Maui and Hawaii County.
