Hurricane Lane Unleashes Flooding And Landslides In Hawaii

 Friday, August 24, 2018


Hurricane Lane weakened as it marched toward Hawaii, but it’s list of life-threatening calamities is still going strong. The hurricane was downgraded to a Category 3 storm Thursday, even as it unleashed torrential rainfall, flooding and landslides over parts of Hawaii’s Big Island, along with dangerous surf and high winds. The conditions continued early Friday. Lane is forecast to bring even more damage as its center gets closer Friday and Saturday. While it’s unclear whether the islands will get a direct hit, the hurricane will bring "significant and life-threatening flash flooding and landslides," the National Weather Service said. Lane’s powerful center "will move over, or dangerously close" to parts of the Hawaii islands late Friday, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center said.
