Friday, August 7, 2009, 3:30 pm


As you know, Hurricane Felicia is weakening as it heads toward the Hawaiian Islands.  We have been asked to provide periodic updates to our members:

Current Situation:
  • Hurricane Felicia has weakened to a category 2 hurricane. The National Weather Service (NWS) believes that the storm will continue to weaken as it travels over cooler water today and tomorrow morning.
  • NWS also believes that Felicia will likely weaken to a tropical storm or tropical depression by the time it reaches the islands. All islands should therefore be prepared for:
    • High surf along eastern shores beginning Sunday.
    • Heavy showers and possible flooding on all islands Monday through Tuesday.
  • The State Civil Defense and the National Weather Service continue to monitor this storm closely and update the public on a regular basis.
  • Official NWS updates are available at
