Now at Category 5, Hurricane Lane bears down on Hawaii

Now at Category 5, Hurricane Lane bears down on Hawaii

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.

Mueller: Prison Time An Option For Former Trump Campaign Aide Papadopoulos
Mifsud, who "has not returned to the United States" since February 2017, has not been publicly charged with a crime. Papadopoulos was also the first Trump campaign adviser to plead guilty in Mueller's investigation.

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.

Trump sets goal to create USA military Space Force by 2020
Pence said the force "will not be built from scratch", but will tap existing space program personnel. The Space Force will include a new full-combatant command dubbed the U.S.

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.

China, Germany defend Iran business ties as USA sanctions grip
Tuesday's sanctions target Iran's purchases of USA dollars, metals trading, coal, industrial software and the auto sector. Companies doing business with Iran will be barred from the United States, Mr Trump said on Tuesday.

"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".
