Hurricane Iselle is due to arrive on, or near, Oahu sometime on Thurs. night.

"Anticipated Iselle conditions for Oahu. Winds 40-50 mph, gusts to 55+ mph. Rain 4-7+ inches, locally higher windward." - Hawaii News Now

You're all aware that riding out the storm means preparing for the storm. Here are some things to remember:
  • If you're responsible for an older person, or someone who has limited mobility, make sure to have a plan for them.
  • Have a first aid kit handy.
  • Have a plan for drinking water and basic necessities.
  • Bring your rubbish and recycling containers to a sheltered area (side yard, garage, etc.) so they do not blow over and send rubbish flying throughout the neighborhood.
  • Make sure you've considered pets in your preparations.
    • Food and water
    • Toys or chew things for dogs to help with the scary noises from the wind
    • Have a safe place for pets to wait it out. For dogs, that may be a crate.
    • Read Hurricane Tips for Pet Owners
  • Identify a safe room in your home that has minimal window exposure.
  • Have a basic tool kit handy.
  • Read More Tips from NOAA
Be safe over the next few days!
