In the latest update in the Aloha State, it was announced that Hurricane Lane is weakening and is currently down to a category 1 with winds of 85 mph and gusts up to 105 mph.
Lane finally took a jog, but not in the direction hoped for.
It jogged to the NNE which means it is heading closer to the Hawaiian islands, at a speed of 2 mph.
The hurricane is, however, expected to turn to the southwest tomorrow, Saturday, with winds becoming disorganized and weakening at a rapid pace over the next 2 days. So much so that it is anticipated that the hurricane may be downgraded to a tropical storm.
Although it isn’t over yet, it is a good sign for Hawaii, as the Aloha State is still bracing for potential heavy rains.
