Hawaii Braces for Hurricane Lane
Residents of the 50th State are stockpiling food and boarding up windows, anticipating what’s expected to be the worst storm to hit the island chain since 1992’s Hurricane Iniki. Schools are closed for a week and Gov. David Ige urged residents to collect enough food for two weeks as grocery store shelves were cleared. Meanwhile, U.S. Navy vessels left Pearl Harbor to ride out the tempest. The National Weather Service predicted 145-mph winds from the Category 4 storm, expected to churn past the islands Thursday and Friday.
