Though Hurricane Lane is expected to weaken to a category 3 storm by Thursday afternoon, it is still forecasted to remain a risky storm as is draws closer to the Hawaiian Islands.

Hurricane Lane, 5-day forecast track., 6:30 p.m. 8.21.18. The storm was traveling west-northwest at 9 miles per hour with 160 miles per hour maximum sustained winds.

Dye says rain associated with the hurricane has started to show up on radar off the Big Island of Hawaii and offshore buoys are detecting higher than normal waves.

Hawaii has been issued with an extreme weather warning as Hurricane Lane hovers dangerously close to the islands.

Hurricane Lane strengthened to a Category 5 storm on Tuesday as it charged toward Hawaii where residents braced for "life threatening" winds and flooding, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. Mount Kilauea began producing lava flows in early May and portions of the southeastern coastline of the Big Island have been transformed by the lava flows that covered over 13 square miles (35 square kilometers).

All public and charter schools and Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) offices on Hawaii Island and in Maui County will be closed Wednesday, Aug. 22, until further notice, in anticipation of unsafe storm conditions from Hurricane Lane.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles from Lane's center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles.

Indonesia , a sprawling archipelago that straddles the Pacific " Ring of Fire ", is prone to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. They're all gathering in an open field, still terrified", said Endri Susanto, a children's rights activist in Mataram.

The storm is now southeast of the Hawaiian Islands and is expected to turn northwest and pass the south-southeastern part of the Big Island tonight (Aug. 22). The spaghetti models, which meteorologists use to visualize potential storm paths, further underscore the uncertainty.

Hawaii Gov. David Ige is allowing non-essential state employees on the Big Island and Maui to go on administrative leave from Wednesday to Friday as Hurricane Lane approaches. Hurricane-force winds are not expected though there is potential for winds to reach up to 73 miles per hour.

Hawaii is bracing for Hurricane Lane, which could be the first hurricane to make landfall on the islands in decades. Lane is starting to make it's turn tonight towards Hawaii.

"Only two hurricanes on record have struck the islands directly, both of them in Kauai: Category 1 Dot in 1959, and catastrophic Category 4 Iniki in 1992", the site said.

"We're not a sheltering place for the community", she said, explaining that during the January false missile alert a lot of people sought refuge at the facility. Hurricanes Dot and Iniki, as well as the majority of major hurricanes shown in NOAA's database reached their maximum intensity either far to the south or southeast of the islands.

"I remember how very little rain fell".

Utility poles were down all over the island, and his 7th-grade classes were held in Army tents for several months.
