Hilo was anticipated to get much of the storm, but unfortunately, it did get some.

Ships have all left the ports, and Pearl Harbor. They anticipate 2 weeks before we get more deliveries, but FEMA has supplied each island with emergency supplies for post storm.

BOWS has filled all the tanks (forget the term?) in case we lose electricity, and has asked everyone to reduce water consumption. Filling the bathtub is good for use to flush your toilets, in case service is interrupted.

During the 2006 earthquake we had no electricity for 24 hours and were just about to lose water supply to homes when the power came back.

It gets 30-40 inches per year regularly, then add a storm

This year they got more than 4 FEET of rain during a 24-hour period.

I'm sure they are not looking forward to this storm.

23Aug18 2pHST/5pPDT/8pEDT - Estimated winds 125mph(215km/h), moving NNW 6mph(10km/h), pressure 953mb. Moving even slower now. Down to a strong Cat3.

Storm Surge (the entire body of water rising with waves on top...think of it like a higher then normal high tide) of 2 to 4 feet above normal water levels expected along South and West facing shorelines near where the center of Lane travels.

Adding to the storm surge is a full moon and a king tide. Those by themselves usually cause problems.

They just addressed that on KHNL, they said it is a bank of thunderstorms. A hurricane "mini me."

Interesting stats on John in 1994. His reply mentions John was stronger and pressure at 929mb?

Looks like an outage at the airport.
