Center Closure Due To Hazardous Weather Brought by TS Flossie

Aloha Parents,

Due to the hazardous weather conditions being brought to the islands by Tropical Storm Flossie, we will be following official recommendations to take precautions and proactive safety measures. 

Ka Hana Pono will be closing at 4pm on Monday 7/29/13 with the expectation to reopen on Wednesday 7/31/13 after the storm has passed.

This means:

Ka Hana Pono Daycare will be closing early on Monday 7/29 at 4:00pm

At last update from the National Weather Service at 8pm tonight, Oahu is expected to begin feeling the effects of the storm between 4-6pm Monday

*If you will be unable to pickup your child by 4:00pm arrangements can be made with us for your child to be picked up from our home in Mokuleia.

Ka Hana Pono will be closed on Tuesday 7/30 the day that Oahu is expected to be experiencing 35-45mph winds with gusts up to 55mph, torrential rain, lightning and thunderstorms.

Ka Hana Pono will resume its regular hours on Wednesday, July 31, 2013, unless otherwise noted. 

The main difference between a hurricane and a tropical storm is the wind speeds, and boarding up windows is unwarranted in the case of a tropical storm.  However, there is the chance for power outages and damage from falling trees, debris or poles.  There is also potential for thunderstorms, waterspouts, tornadoes, heavy rains, flash flooding, storm surge & gusty winds.  (6 inches of rushing floodwater can knock down an adult; 24 inches can move vehicles)

Residents are advised to prepare by having alternative ways to cook, flashlights and battery-operated radios.
