Hurricane Lane promises to deliver record rain and high winds.
This morning Honolulu appears to be in the crosshairs however all islands will see damaging winds and record rain.
As Kiluea continues to erupt, though not as vigorously as before, the islands will be dealing with its second disaster in less than a year.

The storm was moving westward at 10 mph (16 km/h) and should continue to move west through Tuesday night. But forecasts indicate Lane will turn in a more northerly direction by Wednesday, which will bring the center of storm very close to Hawaii and Maui on Thursday, the Hurricane Center said.
Hurricane Lane poses a "potential threat to life and property," according to the NWS, and "efforts to protect property should now be underway."

The National Weather Service's Central Pacific Hurricane Center said in its 11 a.m. ET advisory that Lane, which is likely to cause catastrophic damage with winds 155 mph or above, is located about 460 miles south-southeast of Honolulu and moving west-northwest at 9 mph. The storm strengthened to a Category 5 storm with 160 mph winds before slightly weakening, but hurricane warnings are in effect for Hawaii's Big Island and the island of Maui.

"Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Lane is forecast to remain a dangerous hurricane as it draws closer to the Hawaiian Islands," the CPHC said.

Hurricane Lane is looking like it will track over Kiluea. With the new lava field I'm wondering if homes nearby that are still standing will be subjected to more flooding due to runoff. Odd that they should evacuate due to fire and may lose their homes due to flood. This has been such a strange year weather and earthquake wise.

Lane is a Cat 3 at this hour, 125 mph winds
953mb, moving NNW at 6 mph

At that pace, it won't make it to Kauai till Saturday.
Rainfall amounts will be very high.
Torrential rain expected 15" or more.
Hilo, Hi is seeing flash flooding right now.

The Weather Channel is covering it 24 hr now till Saturday.
Waikiki could see a storm surge that could put a foot of water in the beachfront hotels.

Yeah, I hate to see it. Hawaii is a national treasure.

Now they're calling for 30-40" of rain in areas because of the slow moving of the storm - 5 mph.
That's hard to wrap you head around. Hope they're wrong on this point.

High winds from Hurricane Lane are being blamed for starting a brush fire in Lahaina on the island of Maui. (Aug. 24)

Yeah, no kidding here. 100 homes evacuated and 100+ aces burned.
When you think of this year, the islands have seen volcanic disaster, earthquakes, hurricane, and wildfire.
That's a lot of trouble for a small place.

Top wind speed hit a Cat 5 160mph, out at sea.
Lane was a flooding event by and large, but I'm sure residents wouldn't agree with that.
Wind and wildfire added to the worries and damage.

...LANE PRODUCES TORRENTIAL RAINFALL OVER THE BIG ISLAND...

Rain bands within the eastern semicircle of Lane's circulation 
continue to produce torrential rainfall over the Big Island's slopes
from Hawi on the north side of the island to Naalehu on the south
side. Significant flash flooding has occurred in multiple areas 
across the northeast and east facing slopes of the island. Several
evacuations occurred in Hilo, with water rescues taking place at 
Kaiulani Street. As usual, the Bayfront area was inundated by the 
overflow of Alenaio Stream. Highway 19 was closed in multiple 
locations due to landslides and flooding. Akoni Pule Highway was 
closed by a landslide near Halawa Gulch. Highway 130 was closed by
flooding south of Keeau. Numerous other roads were also closed by
flooding.

Heavy rain and flash flooding has also developed over windward
portions of Maui.
