HONOLULU (AP) – Weather officials say the Hawaiian island of Oahu is under a hurricane warning.
The Central Pacific Hurricane Center said in a report released Wednesday evening that a hurriane warning is also in effect for Big Island, Maui, Lanai, Molokai and Kahoolawe.
The National Weather Service says Lane is forecast to move dangerously close to the main Hawaiian islands as a hurricane Thursday through Saturday, potentially bringing damaging winds, prolonged heavy rainfall and life-threatening flash-flooding.
The National Weather Service says there are heavy bouts of rain on the east of the Big Island.
Hawaii’s public schools will be closed for the rest of the week in anticipation of the storm.
