Lol. The storm is still far away from her I think but a good reminder the strongest winds are less than 50 miles from the center. So if the center doesnt make landfall then its no big deal for the Palms. Even if does make landfall not everyone will experience hurricane force winds. I say this from experience, you have to be really close to the center to get "disaster" and then its only a certain area that does.

I think landslides and flooding will be the worst of it.

-US Navy has ordered ships and subs not in maintenance out of port, they'll ride the storm out at sea. It's more dangerous for large ships to be tied up to the docks in hurricanes. And the hurricane is moving about 7mph...so they can easily maneuver around it. See this often on the US mainland, no surprise.

11aHST/2pPDT/5pEDT cone map, shifted ever so slightly more north and keeps storm a little stronger longer:
Pacific - Lane forms August 15, 2018-storm1.jpg

This also slightly bumps up the odds for higher winds:
% chance of 59mph+:
Pacific - Lane forms August 15, 2018-storm2.jpg

%chance of 74+mph winds (Hurricane force):
Pacific - Lane forms August 15, 2018-storm3.jpg

Rainbow Falls Lookout (about 1 miles West of Hilo, HI):
