    Default Hurricanes Jova and Kenneth

    Here we go! There are two hurricanes east of the Hawaiian Islands right now, Hurricane Jova and Hurricane Kenneth. I'm guessing they'll be in our neighborhood in about a week or so. Here's the latest NOAA bulletin:

    TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
    NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
    4 PM PDT FRI SEP 16 2005

    FOR THE EASTERN NORTH PACIFIC... EAST OF 140 DEGREES WEST LONGITUDE.

    The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Hurricane Jova, located about 1350 miles east-southeast of Hilo Hawaii, and on Hurricane Kenneth, located about 1165 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.

    The broad area of low pressure located about 750 miles south of the southern tip of Baja California is drifting slowly westward. This system has changed little today, but there is some potential for it to develop into a tropical depression during the next day or two , if it does not get absorbed into a larger disturbance located to the east.

    A large tropical disturbance located about 400 miles south of Manzanillo Mexico has continued to become a little better organized this afternoon. The system is moving west-northwestward at 10 to 15 mph, and it has the potential to develop into a tropical depression during the next day or so.

    Elsewhere, Tropical storm formation is not expected through Saturday.
    Here are a couple of good local map references for storm tracking:

    I guess I should go to the store today and tomorrow and stock up on bottled water, spam, batteries and granola bars.

    Not that it's going to hit Hawaii but here is the 4 day advanced notice about hurricanes.

    Helen, since you going to Long's the Red Salmon is also on sale for $1.99 It's great just from the can. Add a little shoyu with sliced tomato and diced onions it's a dish in it's self.

    Anybody know wea get cheap toilet paper. I serious. I went to Longs. Had to buy a 12 pack Deluxe Roll for $ 4.99. It's getting expensive to take a dump. If a hurricane does hit...I sure don't want to be without toilet paper.

    Where's the list again for what we need? Tape, Water, Medications, etc.

    Mahalo,

    Ryan said that he wanted to go to Longs to stock up on stuff before the disaster comes. Me I am flexible, I might want to go to Wal-Mart for the toilet paper (roll of 4 for $1.38), Daiei for the spam, Costco for the AA batteries, Sam's Club for the granola bars and I haven't decided on where to get the bottled water yet.

    That'd be a good invite if your place can fit 11 people, along with the other HIthreads people invited.

    I haven't seen the latest news on it, but as long as my Dad's tools are in the same place during and after the possible storm, then we're safe.
    How'd I get so white and nerdy?

    When they were talking about NO a doctor had been saying all the medical records for the people in the areas of the Gulf coast that were hit the hardest were lost and that they'd have to build up the things from square one. Which will be really tough for some of the older folks who just don't remember and for kids who don't have their folks to remember for them.

    They mentioned an online records storage site where you can fill out a medical history profile so if something happens the records won't be permanetly lost and can be accessed from anywhere.

    http://www.inhealthrecords.com/

    Might be something to check out. Could be good if you travel alot too.

    ...and now there's a third storm, Tropical Storm Lidia, behind Hurricane Jova and Hurricane Kenneth. Jova's now a Category 2, and Kenneth is up to Category 3. Boy, this'll be an interesting couple of weeks.

    Wow! Lucky I when check this thread!

    Adrian, I can fit more than 11 people with ease. I have a three bedroom. There's only MAMA, MARK and me. In the event of an emergency, we can surely share our bedrooms and living rooms as deemed fit. We will make room! I also have a huge enclose lanai area.

    Kimo, No...I have not met Tiny. I believed in GOD way before TINY came on HT! However, I don't go preaching my beliefs on everyone and I respect what others believe in even if it's a broom. More power to them.

    Now, back to the topic at hand...yes, it's going to be very interesting. No excuse not to stock up on items and things. We are warned well in advanced so better not have any cry babies from HT. Even if there will not be anything...it's better to be safe than SORRY!

    The 4th storm area behind Lidia may become organized too and that will be named Max. At the rate these things are going, we'll be up to the letter "Z" in no time.

    OK now I better go look for my flashlight and batteries among other things.

    Aloha folks,

    Wow.....two in one month???? Three in one month????? Good Lord, maybe 4???????? This will be one for my personal history books. I've tried not to watch too much tv the past couple of weeks. So, imagine my surprise this afternoon as I kissed my husband good bye for 6 months (after a two month separation for the guard with a ten day interval in between) and heard from another wife that there were a couple of storms a brewin' in the Pacific. I was in Biloxi, MS for Katrina. Words will never explain completely what it was and still is like down there. I will ask this one thing of all of you local friends. Remember that God gave you life and God will take it if it's your time. But, PLEASE PLEASE take heed in the warnings, etc. that we are given. Prepare......make sure you have plenty of the stuff they warn you to have. Some people where I was sheltered didn't take it seriously. They had no food, they had no water......it was not a good situation. Remember, you may be needed to save somebody else's life. Please take all measures to protect your own. Keep your hearts light. You will need this pleasantness should we actually get hit with this storm. It will help get you through the toughest parts.......Don't wait til the last minute. There will always be something you forget...........be prepared.

    Click on the photo for a larger version. Notice our islands in the upper middle, and Hurricane Jova in the lower right. Then pray.

    Sorry Kimo...I didn't mean to offend you. I was just trying to help based on recent personal experience.

    Take a look at these three images. They're all based on the same satellite photo, but each image has a different storm highlighted. If you can, open up all three at once (e.g., as three tabs in Firefox) and flip between them:

    Jova - Kenneth - Lidia

    Boy, all three in a row... with soon-to-be-named Max right after them...

    I have a question. In light of katrina what does the governor or mayors of hawaii do when hawaii faces hurricanes. Are your governement officials even thinking about making preparations for the Islands. They are talking about making better safeguards for Louisiana and Mississippi, has anybody heard of them doing that for the Hawaii Islands they are apart of the the United States and should be looked after too.

    Unless Jova makes a turn to the south, I don't think this one is going to hit Hawaii directly, however we might feel the effects indirectly by more rain and that got me slightly concerned. People talk about the effects of hurricanes due to the high winds and flooding from the sea that hits the coastal areas, but not the rain, which might affect all areas in Hawaii. Granted flood waters are not going to stay around like in New Orleans did but if streams or flood control canals are blocked with rubbish, there might be a situtation like last year's flood at UH, where Manoa stream was blocked, the water jumped the banks and flow downhill to hit parts of UH.

    Well, serves me right for joking that locals always wait until their windows are rattling before mobbing the nearest Longs. These storms are 1,000 miles away and so far projected to miss us by a huge margin, and yet...

    When I headed out today to do some supposedly early replenishment of our hurricane bin, I found Costco Waipio was sold out of bottled water. Wal-Mart was down to some overpriced brands and some really busted up cases of the cheap stuff. Safeway only had large jugs -- the huge shelf area was completely bare.

    Also figured I wanted a new flashlight. Walmart was sold out. Propane? Walmart was sold out. I ended up overpaying for an off-brand flashlight at City Mill. Still looking for propane.

    Methinks there's a bit of panic buying going on. Better now than when the storm's on our doorstep, though, I guess...

    I went to THREE different grocery stores in an attempt to buy one freakin' 20lb bag of rice. I canNOT bring myself to type the price I paid for that bag when I finally found it, but know this! It was NOT on sale™.

    I guess I consider myself lucky because this afternoon a friend drove me to Costco at Iwilei and managed to pick spam, tuna, AA batteries, Gatorade and Capri Sun drinks.

    They had one pack of C batteries left. I wasn't looking for bottled water but I figure I could drink some of the Gatorade now since I have 24 bottles and fill up the empty bottles with water.

    This goes on the theory that I don't have to evacuate my building during a hurricane because there is no way I can lug the stuff I brought to some shelter.

    I have heard of some meetings and committees being formed to re vamp if you will. But, with Katrina only three weeks old, I'm sure not much has been accomplished. We shall soon see.
