Two Category 3 Hurricanes Approaching Fast

Catchment water for the year, if your roof doesn't blow off...

Here we go again.

Two Category 3 (120+ MPH) hurricanes heading for Puna.  Chances are high winds will be 60 MPH or more when it hits land.  Madeline has now been downgraded to a tropical storm.  Flash flood watch still in effect. Keep an eye out for Lester towards the weekend.  Well that was fun.  Hope you enjoyed the rain and muggy weather!

The Community Center may be open Wednesday and Thursday 9-2, but only if weather permits.  It is not a hurricane shelter, and has no beds or supplies, but you can use the phone, get online, get information and assistance, or try to get a ride to a shelter from there.

If you live in a structure that is not hurricane ready, consider going to one of the following shelters:
