Oahu To Begin Feeling Impact of Storm @ 6pm
We understand that at this hour and depending on which side of the island you’re on, it’s challenging trying to understand the threat of the wind rain high surf and storm surges when people are looking out the window and not being able to square what they’re seeing with what the National Weather Service and Civil Defense is expecting.
Our decision to be closing at 4pm today and to remain closed Tuesday 7/31 is based on the best available information we have. Our intent is to keep families together and people safe.
Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell today at 8:15am said that Oahu can anticipate to begin feeling the real impacts of Flossie around 6pm and by then we want everyone to be settled in at home and prepared and not travelling about unless its essential. By 9pm the storm will be directly overhead of Oahu
With the heavy rains flash flooding and mudslides are of primary concern. Sustained winds of the storm are now at 40mph.
