The National Hurricane Center has issued a Hurricane Wacth for the Hawaiian Islands as Hurricane Olivia makes her way toward a DIRECT HIT.

As of 11:00 PM Eastern US time on Sunday evening, Olivia was just barely a hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of about 75 MPH.

This storm comes about a couple weeks after another storm deluged Hawaii with over 20 Inches of rain, causing widespread flooding and serious property damage.

Persons in Hawaii should be making plans right now to have Emergency food, water, medicines, flashlight and portable radios with spare batteries.  Do not wait until just before the storm strikes.  Folks who wait often find empty store shelves, empty gasoline stations and no way to prepare themselves or their families to get through such a storm.

Here's what to have:

Be sure to have the following handy:

  • Water (1 gallon per person, per day)
  • Water purification tablets
  • Food (non-perishable and easy-to-prepare items)
  • Gasoline for your car and generator stored in proper containers
  • Battery-operated alarm clock
  • Battery or crank-operated TV/radio
  • Thermos and coolers
  • Flashlight with extra batteries and bulbs
  • Extra batteries
  • Fire extinguisher
  • First aid kit
  • Cell phones and chargers
  • List of important phone numbers
  • Medications/medical items and eyeglasses
  • Manual can-opener
  • Pots, pans and eating utensils
  • Grill or camp stove
  • Butane lighter
  • Work boots
  • Change of clothes
  • Sleeping bags, pillows, sheets, blankets and towels
  • Toiletries like soap and shampoo
  • Paper towels
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Multi-purpose tool and tools/supplies for securing your home (i.e. duct tape, plastic sheeting, scissors, work gloves, matches, heavy duty extension cords etc.)
  • Generator (Make sure you use it safely)

    I saw where the Governor of Hawaii has told the people of his state to prepare "but don't buy too much." Can you buy too much to prepare for these types of storms. Thank You for your coverage and warning the people. I hope that they listen.

      I have to correct myself-it was a mayor, not the governor that told folks not to buy too much. Sorry, didn't mean to attribute a comment to the wrong person.
