Two major hurricanes are threatening Hawaii. The first is Madeline, a Category 3 hurricane packing maximum sustained winds of 115 mph, moving west at 10 mph. Like Hurricane Iselle in August 2014, Madeline is headed straight for Hawaii Island, with landfall expected sometime on Wednesday in the Ka’u District. A hurricane watch has been issued for Hawaii Island. As of 2 p.m. Monday, 29 August 2016, Madeline is about 600 miles east of Hilo. Hawaii Island residents have been told to prepare for high winds, heavy showers, and higher than normal surf.
Right behind Madeline is Hurricane Lester, now a Category 4 storm packing maximum sustained winds of 135 mph, with gusts of up to 160 mph. Lester is about 1,300 miles east of Hilo, moving west at 13 mph. Lester is expected to pass close to Hawaii Island on Saturday, 03 September 2016.
