|A Hurricane Preparedness Tip from CPHC:|
Hurricane season runs from June 1st through November 30th, when the islands are most susceptible to a hurricane threat.
A tropical storm or hurricane watch is issued when conditions are expected in the specified area of the watch, usually within 48 hours. Listen to NOAA Weather Radio and local media outlets for the latest weather information. Store at least 7 days worth of drinking water and non-perishable food. Fill your car's gas tank, and know the best route to evacuate.
A tropical storm or hurricane warning is issued when conditions are expected in the specified area of the warning, usually within 36 hours. Be prepared to shelter in place or to evacuate immediately, if emergency management officials advise it.
