Hawaii Bracing for Hurricane Lane, Biggest Storm to Hit the Islands in Decades

Hawaii is under a state of emergency and is bracing for the impact of Hurricane Lane, the biggest storm to hit the islands in decades.

Huge waves are hitting the shore as the category 3 storm continues to churn toward the big island, with 120 M.P.H. winds.

Nearly 2 ft. of rain fell in just 24 hours and forecasters have worn the worst is yet to come.

Some neighborhoods look more like lakes and the rushing Wailuku River is also a major concern.

Hurricane Lane is no longer expected to strike the island directly, but it will still pack hurricane-strength winds.

People on the islands have been urged to stockpile for at least two weeks’ worth of food, water and medicine.
