  • CENTRAL PACIFIC HURRICANE CENTER           The forecast track for Hurricane Olivia as of 5 a.m. today

Although there are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, forecasters say interests in Hawaii should monitor the progress of Olivia this weekend and use this time to enact your hurricane action plan. "I can't find another example of a hurricane/typhoon nearing Guam, Hawaii & the eastern United States at nearly exactly the same time (days ~ 4,5,6 respectively)".

The National Hurricane Center has issued advisories for the Atlantic on Hurricane Florence, and two tropical storms, Helene and Isaac. "Florence is forecast to rapidly strengthen to a major hurricane by Monday, and is expected to remain an extremely unsafe major hurricane through Thursday", the advisory says. By Wednesday evening, the storm's expected to have about 50 mph winds some 145 miles west of Kailua-Kona.

The Central Pacific Hurricane Center downgraded Norman to a tropical storm Friday as the system moved away from Hawaii.

It is still too early to know what effects this hurricane will have on Hawai'i Island. "Now is the time to prepare", said Gov. David Ige. "I'm afraid it's going to be a big one", she said.

Barack Obama returns to campaign trail, but will he succeed?
On Friday, the Barack Obama we know and love stepped back into the ring and delivered a fiery speech aimed at Trump and his administration.

Hurricane Olivia continues on its path toward the Hawaiian Islands as a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds around 75 miles per hour.

The eye of the Category 2 storm was located about 1,375 miles east of Hilo, Hawaii, and 1,550 miles east of Honolulu, the NHC said in its 2 p.m. PDT update.

"Olivia may get even closer than Lane did or directly across the chain, bringing localized damaging winds and possibly intense rain fall, flooding, very high surf and storm surge". With a turn more to the northwest expected through this week, it'll only remain as a tropical storm before it weakens by Thursday.

High temperatures were forecast to range from 84 to 89 degrees.
