Hurricane Madeline rapidly intensified from Sunday into Monday morning, and it may take a close swipe at parts of the Hawaiian Islands in the days ahead. Madeline's estimated peak surface winds increased from a 50 mph tropical storm Sunday morning, to a 125 mph Category 3 hurricane by Monday evening. A hurricane watch has been issued for Hawaii's Big Island. This means hurricane-force winds are possible within the warning area in the next 48 hours or less.

additional islands may be added to this watch.

Hurricane Watch
Issued: 5:15 PM HST Aug. 29, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Hurricane Watch remains in effect...

... 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 5 percent... and South Point is 16 percent.
Also... the chance for tropical storm conditions at Hilo is 63
percent... at Kailua-Kona is 56 percent... and at South Point
is 73 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 10 to 18 feet on Tuesday..and to 15
to 25 feet on 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. Total rain
accumulations of 5 to 10 inches are possible... with isolated
maximum amounts near 15 inches... especially over windward
portions of The Big Island. This rainfall may lead to
dangerous flash floods and mudslides. Refer to the watch for
more details.
