Gov. David Ige signed a supplemental emergency proclamation as the state prepares for possible impacts by Hurricane Lester. The supplemental proclamation authorizes the Department of Transportation to take prompt, expeditious action in dealing with preemptive, emergency and restorative work and repairs to Kamehameha Highway in Kaʻaʻawa on O‘ahu’s north shore.

The original proclamation, signed on Aug. 30, authorizes the expenditure of state monies for quick and efficient relief of disaster-related damages, losses and suffering resulting from the storm.
