Hurricane Lane in Hawaii

Posted: August 24th, 2018 | Comments Off

Normally on Fridays we post a happy Hawaii vacation photo from a reader. In light of the hurricane that’s passing near Hawaii, we felt that posting our usual Aloha Friday Photo would be insensitive to the residents of Hawaii.

Thankfully, the eye of the hurricane did not hit the islands, however the outer bands have brought dangerous winds and rain.
