Hurricane Lane's Path: Category 5 Storm Barrels Down on Hawaii

Hurricane Lane Looks Absolutely Massive From Space

The latest forecast model indicates Lane will remain a very strong, and unsafe storm and will maintain on its current track through tonight, turning further northwest Wednesday.

Hurricane Lane is now at Category 5, the National Weather Service said Tuesday, as the storm moved closer to Hawaii.

On Tuesday morning, Lane was positioned 450 miles south-southeast of Kona, tracking west at 12 mph.

Lane is expected to turn toward the northwest Wednesday, followed by a north-northwest turn Thursday through Saturday, pushing the center of the storm near or over the main Hawaiian Islands.

KHNON2 reporters warned viewers that hurricane experts had flown into the storm yesterday evening (6.30 HST) in order to determine the strength of the hurricane.

Very heavy rainfall is expected over parts of the island chain from Wednesday into the weekend, with widespread accumulations in excess of 200 mm expected - and some locally higher amounts. It's possible Oahu and Kauai may later be included in warnings.

In anticipation of the storm, Ige signed an emergency proclamation that declares certain counties of Hawaii disaster areas and allows for the spending of state money for quick and efficient relief for damages, loss and suffering.

Another hurricane is threatening to impact Hawaii this week, as unsafe Category 4 Hurricane Lane approaches the Central Pacific island chain just two weeks after Hurricane Hector passed the islands.

Based on the scientific information and expertise available, Hawaii is in danger of being significantly impacted by Hurricane Lane, whether or not the hurricane directly hits the state, according to a state press release. "A Hurricane Watch remains in effect for Maui County, and is now posted for Oʻahu, with tropical-storm force winds possibly beginning Thursday or Thursday night". But early indications showed that the south end of the island up to the western side would be taking the brunt of the storm.

A hurricane warning is usually made about 36 hours before tropical-storm-force are expected to hit a location.

Life-threatening weather conditions can extend well away from the center of the hurricane and interests throughout Hawaii are urged to closely monitor the progress of Lane over the next few days.

"Hurricane Lane is a very serious storm that has the potential to do damage and cause harm", said Tom Travis, who heads up the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency.

Starting Wednesday night it was forecast to dump 10 to 15 inches of rain, with isolated amounts greater than 20 inches over the Hawaiian Islands, the centre said.

National Weather Service meteorologist Melissa Dye says Hurricane Lane was 320 miles (515 kilometers) southeast of Hilo shortly before 5:30 a.m.
