Check out Hurricane Julio’s 5-day forecast and batten down the hatches!

Tropical Storm Iselle is making landfall right now. It is reported that HPP (Hawaiian Paradise Park) has a lot of damage. Even though this weather system has been downgraded to a tropical storm means little with regard to heavy rain and windspeed.

In addition, there are many tree species on the  island that are not indigenous to the area which makes them vulnerable to wind damage. 15-25 ft. waves are being observed with up to 70 ft. high splashes! Best to stay away from the beaches and avoid coastal roads if possible.

It’s recommended that you shelter in place at this point – however, here is a list of shelters for your information should you decide it is too dangerous to stay in your home because of damage.
