Are you prepared?
Hawai`i's hurricane season started June 1 and ends November 30. Forecasters warn of above-average 2019 cyclone activity in the Central Pacific and predict 5 to 8 storms. Hurricane Erick just passed south of the Big Island, and Hurricane Flossie is heading towards the Big Island now. Being prepared for the danger and potential upheaval of a hurricane and torrential rains requires planning and coordination with family and neighbors.
