Major Hurricane Lane, a Category 4 storm, is heading toward Hawaii, forecasters warn

The California Task Force 8 will be sending 35 members to Kauai before Hurricane Lane, which strengthened to a Category 5 storm early Wednesday.

Officials expect the island chain to experience hurricane conditions within the next 36 hours.

A flash flood watch is expected to be posted tomorrow at 6 a.m., according to the National Weather Service.

"It's one of only two recorded Category 5 hurricanes to pass within 350 miles of the Big Island's South Point", KGMB reported.

The centre of the storm is expected to track "dangerously" close to or over the islands between Thursday and Saturday, the NHC said. Six people died as a result of the storm, and more than 100 were injured, according to a CPHC report on the 1992 hurricane season.

- Storm total rainfall amounts of 10-15 inches, isolated amounts of 20 inches possible.

The service said hurricane conditions are expected within the warning area, in Hawaii County, on Thursday, while tropical storm conditions would affect the "watch" area starting Thursday.

While there is still considerable uncertainty in the forecast for Lane, it appears the storm will be passing close enough to the islands on Thursday and Friday to bring significant impacts to the southern portions of the islands, especially along the coastline.

Canadians are being advised to avoid all non-essential travel to Hawaii as a risky Category 4 hurricane advances towards the US state.

Residents are stocking up on essentials are they prepare for Lane to reach Hawaii.

Tornadoes and large waterspouts will be possible due to Lane, mainly along and to the right of the track of the hurricane, the weather service said. Hurricane watches are in effect for Maui, Oahu, and other small islands.

Gov. David Ige signed an emergency proclamation Tuesday to "provide relief for disaster damages, losses and suffering" caused by the hurricane.

Hawaiians scrambled to prepare for the storm's arrival.

Kauai resident Mike Miranda was 12 when Hurricane Iniki struck the island 26 years ago.
