Public schools on the Big Island and in Maui County are closed Wednesday until further notice. The remainder of the island could experience tropical storm force winds.

A hurricane warning has been issued for the Big Island, including Hilo, and hurricane watches are in place for Maui and Oahu, including Honolulu.

Forecasters warned of large swells that could produce unsafe surf and strong currents along some shorelines, beginning Wednesday on the Big Island.

A slow weakening of Lane is expected over the next two days but the system is expected to remain a risky hurricane as it draws nearer to the islands, the weather service said.

Bearing 250km/h winds, it threatened to dump as much as 50cm of rain over parts of the islands, triggering major flash flooding and landslides.

Those in the Hawaiian Islands should keep a vigilant eye on Lane and follow the Central Pacific Hurricane Center for the latest details on the protection of life and property.

The hurricane, which is forecast to begin pummeling the islands later today (Aug. 22), has already prompted the governor of Hawaii to declare a state of emergency.

Also Tuesday, Hawaii Gov. David Ige signed an emergency proclamation to put the state in position to lend support to county emergency responders.

All closures, watches and warnings previously published, below, remain in effect.

The National Weather Service issued a hurricane warning Tuesday evening for the Big Island (Hawaii island).

Based on the scientific information and expertise available, Hawai'i is in danger of being significantly impacted by Hurricane Lane, whether or not the hurricane directly hits the state.

The last category five storm to come this close to Hawaii was John in 1994.

All residents should review preparedness plans and take early precautionary measures at this time.

Lane is about "280 miles south of the Big Island this morning and has started a turn towards the northwest in line with the Central Pacific Hurricane Center forecast", said the NHC in another update at 11:45 a.m. ET. Given 27-28C water temps, shear is a key to weakening it.

The latest forecast model indicates Lane will remain a very strong, and risky storm.

Hurricane Watches are in effect for the eastern half of the island chain, meaning hurricane-force winds are possible near the area within 48 hours. As Lane will be slow-moving as it nears the islands, prolonged heavy rainfall and life-threatening flash flooding will be possible.
