I'll try.


Actually I met the research team once in Glennallen while waiting on my wife who was in the same store. Nice bunch and unlike how they reacted to that angry self righteous Ventura they invited me to come for a tour anytime. Of course that was way back when they were still nuking everyone's brains, hitting China with earthquake rays and controlling the weather. I think they stopped that due to lack of funding, but I'll check


Here's hoping you and everyone else come out OK and unharmed.

Wind has been slow building. Only about 20kts here.

The strong stuff is going to wait until night time to take the power out. Running the last laundry load now.

Mountains and heavy rain aren't usually a good mix especially if the power substations are near a watershed tributary near the base of the mountain..

They aren't, for the most part. The wind is the big threat to the grid. Trees and stuff.

I wonder how the storm surge will effect the islands.

I never heard of a hurricane there except on magnum p.i..

Not as bad as with continental land masses.

But Lane is down to cat 2 now (forecast to be sub-hurricane in 24 hours), so surge won't be a big deal. The surf will be pretty large though.

That's good to hear.

I still think it will somehow ease the lava flow even though i agree that there is not scientific correlation.

If it does then let's just call it island majik.

Activity at both the summit and east flank of Kilauea has been very low for a few weeks now.

Sounds like you are prepared and that's main thing.

You should probably resist the temptation to hop on your surfboard though. Best of luck tonight.

This is interesting. If it's what it looks like, the eye just collapsed entirely and suddenly.

I'll see if I can make a gif.

Hey Blaine! Thank your buddies for me.

I think I saw what I thought I saw.
The wind has been dropping a bit, and the satellite sure don't show what looks like a hurricane.


Eagerly awaiting the next update.

The last couple radar images I saw showed an oblong eye, so I'm not surprised it fell apart.

Wind shear is your friend if hurricanes are not.

Hopefully the islands can deal with rain better than much of the US coast.

Hey everybody - I will keep this thread short and sweet. It looks like Hawaii could be at risk, with a developing/intensifying storm barely down at it... Lets hope it turns away. I have quite a few friends who live out in Maui & Oahu, and they mentioned how worried they were. Grocery stores have already ran out of supply's, and people are struggling to get off town (by flights).. Going to be a scary 36-48 hours as this storm makes its way near Hawaii.



Hurricane Lane strengthened to a Category 5 storm late Tuesday with maximum sustained winds of 160 mph as it moved closer to Hawaii, the National Hurricane Center said. Hawaii County, also known as the Big Island, is under a hurricane warning, meaning hurricane conditions are expected in the next 36 hours. Oahu and Maui County, which includes the islands of Maui, Lanai, Molokai and Kahoolawe, are under a hurricane watch. A Hurricane Watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within the next 48 hours. As of 1 a.m. ET, Lane was located about 375 miles south of Kailua-Kona, on the west coast of Big Island, and about 535 miles south of Honolulu. On the forecast track, the storm is expected to move very close to or over the main Hawaiian Islands from Thursday through Saturday.

I will add more info as it continues to develop along.

Hope all your friends stay safe, including the people who have been going through so much already. Now they are having a big forest fire as well...not sure if it's contained yet or not.

A friend indeed. And a strong feature of this latitude. On the surface, prevailing northeast tradewinds. At 250mb, prevailing westerlies. One thing that makes hurricanes less than common in Hawaii.


Flash flooding is as dangerous here as anywhere. But it doesn't tend to stay around long.


The 1400 update doesn't say much except for degrading the storm again. Being cautious, as they should be.

This special advisory reduces the current intensity of Lane to 75
kt based on rapid weakening of the associated cloud and radar
patterns observed over the past few hours, and adjusts the intensity
and wind radii forecast to better agree with current trends. There
are no other changes at this time. This special advisory takes the
place of the 2 pm intermediate advisory.

Feeling better.

I figure you folks are use to rain but don't build buildings in depressions that fill with water.

You'd be surprised where people build things.

"Meh, this stream hasn't run in years. Those boulders in the streambed, I don't know where they came from but it can't mean much."

A bit of an exaggeration. A bit. But I may be a bit giddy.
