... Precautionary/preparedness actions...
precautionary/preparedness actions...

Cover windows with shutters or plywood. Taping windows is not
recommended because it offers little strength to the glass and no
protection from flying debris. Any objects that could be picked
up and thrown by the wind such as lumber... lawn furniture...
garbage cans... and other items should be stored indoors. Brace
exterior doors... including garage doors.

Prepare for extended power outages. If you need to make a trip to
the hardware store... the grocery store... or the gas station... do
so as early as possible.


... Probability of tropical storm/hurricane conditions...
the chance for hurricane conditions at Hilo is 7 percent...
Kailua-Kona is 4 percent... and South Point is 13 percent.
Also... the chance for tropical storm conditions at Hilo is 58
percent... at Kailua-Kona is 50 percent... and at South Point
is 67 percent. This represents a slight upward trend since
the last forecast. The onset of tropical storm conditions
could occur as early as Wednesday morning.

... Winds...
although changes are still possible... the latest forecast is for
tropical storm force winds of 39 mph or higher from late
Wednesday afternoon to late Thursday morning. Depending on the
exact track of Madeline... there is the possibility of
significant wind damage... including downed trees and power
lines... and damage to roofs and weak structures.

... Storm surge and storm tide...
large and damaging surf is possible along east facing shores.
Surf is expected to build to 8 to 12 feet on Tuesday..and to 15
to 25 feet for Wednesday and Wednesday night. This may cause
significant wave runup or damage to coastal properties and
infrastructure... including roadways. Powerful longshore and
rip currents will be present at most beaches. Large breaking
waves and strong currents may impact Harbor entrances and
channels causing challenging boat handling.

... Inland flooding...
a Flash Flood Watch is in effect. Although some uncertainty
remains regarding the track of Madeline... deep moisture
associated with the hurricane is expected to impact The Big
Island by Wednesday morning... bringing the threat of heavy
flooding rainfall through late Thursday. Refer to the watch for
