Visitors to Maui have been asked to not venture to Hana for the next few days as Tropical Storm Olivia makes its approach. Although the storm has weakened, possible flooding has prompted the warning as well as closed Hana Elementary and High School. Hana Elementary will have a shelter set in place for those in need.
A Tropical Storm Warning for Maui County went into effect yesterday at 5:00 pm. This means a storm is coming within 36 hours. Up to 15 inches of rain can be expected from Olivia. Hurricane Lane provided a wake up call for Maui residents to remain stocked on needed food and water as well as have an emergency plan in place. Residents should also expect delivery delays until the storm passes.
