Rain has tapered off on the Big Island while rain is increasing on Kauai.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
Precautionary/preparedness actions, stay inside, preferably in an interior room, and away from windows. Do not venture outside when high winds are occurring or during temporary lulls as flying debris can cause serious injury.
Have a well-charged cell phone handy, but save it for emergencies only. This will help keep network communications open and conserve your battery power.
Closely monitor NOAA weather radio or other local news outlets for official information.
For small craft who failed to make it to safe harbor or port, and are now in distress, radio your situation according to maritime protocol. If appropriate, deploy your emergency distress beacon. Ensure that everyone is wearing life jackets, and survival suits if available.
NEXT UPDATE
The next local statement will be issued around 600 am HST, or sooner if conditions warrant.
