I.I.I. non-resident scholar Phil Klotzbach gives us a forecast update on Hurricane Lane which is tracking northwest to the islands of Hawaii.
Whether Lane makes landfall in Hawaii or not, heavy rainfall and wind threaten the islands and residents are urged to make necessary preparations.
Hawaii’s Insurance Department has issued a declaration authorizing temporary assistance of nonresident unlicensed independent adjusters due to the anticipated arrival of the hurricane.
The last hurricane to hit Hawaii was Hurricane Iniki in 1992.
The I.I.I. has a Hawaii Hurricane Fact File here.
