Initial reports on the path and timing for Hurricane Lane in Hawaii had us expecting the hurricane ramifications at 2 AM Thursday morning. However, as of 5 PM Thursday night, there is very little going on in Kailua-Kona. A tad overcast, a drizzle now and then, but not much in the way of winds or rain.
Until I looked at the National Hurricane Center map and dug into that website. I am posting this to drip on Thursday night, so when you read this, there won't be an update unless I have internet. Hurricane Lane is now expected to pass by Kona sometime between 8 PM Thursday night and 2 AM Friday morning.
Other parts of the Big Island have experienced flooding and enormous amounts of water, with bridges collapsing and trees falling over because the roots are too soaked. There is no place to go but a shelter if it does serious damage, but I am hoping it doesn't come to that.
You can see a ton more photographs and updates in my personal blog today at this link: Hurricane Lane Conditions Thursday at Kailua-Kona Hawaii.
