August 22, 2018 — Tropical storm- and hurricane-force winds may reach Hawaii's Big Island (the largest and easternmost island) by Wednesday night, followed by a possible 20 inches of rain, flooding, storm surge, and, possibly, landslides. “Now is the time to complete all preparations to protect life and property,” the National Weather Service warns.

Hurricane Lane Here is the current forecast track, from the National Hurricane Center. A hurricane warning means that hurricane conditions are imminent and preparations should be rushed to completion. A watch means hurricane conditions are possible within the next 48 hours.
