Hurricane Olivia Threatens Hawaii with Flash Floods

  • Olivia's track shows it coming close to the Big Island

As of 11 a.m., the storm was located 330 miles north-northeast of Hilo and 375 miles east-northeast of Honolulu.

Olivia would be the second tropical system to directly impact the Hawaiian Islands this year.

The storm was the second-wettest tropical system to impact the United States and the wettest tropical system to impact Hawaii, surpassing Hurricane Hiki in 1950. First, Hurricane Florence was last observed as a strong Category 1 storm with sustained wind speeds of 90 miles per hour and a minimum pressure of 974 millibars. Environmental conditions are expected be conducive for development, and a tropical depression is expected to form over the weekend while the system moves slowly west-northwestward. A watch means residents should prepare for severe weather conditions within 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds and conditions that make outside preparations hard or risky. But officials say a tropical storm shouldn't be taken lightly.
