Papa Ola Lōkahi executive director Sheri-Ann Daniels and the directors of the five Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems are monitoring Hurricane Lane. We are all taking precautions to assure our clients, patients, and employees are safe, and facilities are secured.
The cone generated by the projected path of Lane indicates all islands will be impacted from Thursday though Saturday. Expect to experience intense showers and thunderstorms, flooding and high surf. There is a high likelihood that we will all see winds of 40 MPH or higher.
A HURRICANE WARNING is currently in effect for the Island of Hawai‘i and Maui County, which includes Molokai, Lāna‘i and Kaho‘olawe.
A HURRICANE WATCH is in effect for O‘ahu and Kaua‘i.
By Thursday, Papa Ola Lōkahi will be closed. Hawai‘i Island has already cancelled its classes around the island, and the other NHHCSs are expected to announce adjusted hours for the rest of the week. Please check their respective websites for updates.
