Hurricane Lane “is forecast to move dangerously close to the main Hawaiian islands as a hurricane later this week, potentially bringing damaging winds and life-threatening flash flooding from heavy rainfall,” the weather service’s Central Pacific Hurricane Center warned.

“It is much too early to confidently determine which, if any, of the main Hawaiian islands will be directly impacted by Lane,” the weather service stated.

“At this time, it looks like maybe Puna will be spared,” county Managing Director Wil Okabe said. “But you never know.”

The residents are asked to prepare for the huge storm, “People are getting ready, which is exactly what we want,” Maui County spokesman Rod Antone said. “I know people are taking trips to Costco, buying ramen, rice, the usual. Toilet paper.”

Also, the officials remind to “withdraw cash. Remember, if the power goes out, ATMs aren’t going to be working.”

Ted Lieu commented on the situation and mentioned Trump’s opinion on the climate change and his belief that it doesn’t exist, “Also, one consequence of climate change is more extreme weather events like Category 5 hurricanes. That’s one reason the Pentagon believes in climate change and doesn’t view it as a hoax. There are military assets now at risk in .”

The probable path of the storm is depicted below, however, there is still some uncertainty to Lane’s path as the meteorologists aren’t sure whether it moves north or south.
