Lane is expected to weaken slowly through Friday, but it still is forecast "to remain a risky hurricane as it draws closer to the Hawaiian Islands", the National Weather Service's Central Pacific Hurricane Center says. The storm was traveling west-northwest at 9 miles per hour with 160 miles per hour maximum sustained winds.

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

Even with hurricanes periodically skirting past the Hawaiian islands, the Pacific has been big enough and Hawaii small and lucky enough that few of those storms have actually landed.

According to data provided by the center, Lane's expected to be about 325 miles south-southeast of Kailua-Kona and 275 miles south-southeast of South Point by 6 a.m. today. But they do forecast the storm to run parallel to the entire island chain, potentially sideswiping it with a formidable blow from both water and wind.

Beef Between Cam Newton And Kelvin Benjamin Seems to Have Escalated
Benjamin may have walked away from the tense exchange with Newton, but he was happy run into the end zone shortly thereafter. The Carolina Panthers have spent roughly the past three weeks in training camp preparing for the upcoming season.

Rainfall up to 20 inches could fall in some areas leading to major flash flooding and landslides. The governor's office issued a dire warning Wednesday morning, pleading with residents to "be prepared", to have a disaster kit on hand, and to take measures to prevent flooding on any personal property.

Hurricane Lane, Ige said, is alarming because its track is unpredictable.

Gavin Shigesato, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Honolulu, said Tuesday that tropical storm conditions are possible beginning tonight, with hurricane conditions possible on Thursday. Public schools on the Big Island and in Maui County closed until further notice.

A Hurricane Warning has been issued for the Big Island, a Hurricane Watch has been issued for O'ahu and Maui County.

During his visit to Fort Drum, Trump met with senior leaders and observed an air assault demonstration and sling load operation. A NY native, Trump spent much of the event attacking his home-state governor as well as Sen.

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

Residents are stocking up on essentials and have been remembering how Hawaii was hit by a devastating hurricane in 1992.

Lane represented another kind of rarity: It was a Category 5 storm late Tuesday before weakening Wednesday morning. It is the costliest hurricane in Hawaii history. It's possible Oahu and Kauai may later be included in a weather service advisory for the hurricane.

"We encourage all the people across the state to pay attention for this storm", Ige said.

Buttler and Stokes battle back but India remain in control
From 54 for none, England lost nine wickets for 74 runs and only avoided the follow-on thanks to Jos Buttler's 39. Virat Kohli rotated his bowlers well and this time was Jasprit Bumrah who removed the English skipper.

"But I remember the wind being the strongest force of nature I've ever witnessed and probably the scariest sounds I've ever heard in my life".
