Updated: 8-23-18 Hawaii Braces For 'Hurricane Lane'


Heavy rains from the outer bands of Hurricane Lane are pounding Hawaii's Big Island on Thursday, spawning flash flood warnings and landslides as residents across the state braced for the most powerful storm to hit Hawaii since 1992. https://fxn.ws/2wnS8i9

So scary for our friends there!  Experts are saying there may be a lot of damage with this one...

"Lane has the potential of bringing the state of Hawaii serious and perhaps record damage," said AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.


On Tuesday, Hawaiians flocked to grocery stores to stock up on essential items, such as bottled water, ramen and toilet paper, according to the Associated Press (AP).

One person even posted:  All Costco’s on Oahu are sold out of water. This is the water section at Costco Iwilei 24 hours ago compared to now. @CivilBeat
