The University of Hawaiʻi is closely monitoring Hurricane Lane. Currently, all UH campuses and offices on Hawaiʻi Island, Maui, Lānaʻi, Molokaʻi, Oʻahu and Kauaʻi are closed through Sunday. A decision on UH Mānoa and UH Hilo athletic events scheduled for Saturday and Sunday will be made later depending upon weather conditions and facility availability.
Hurricane Lane is a category 4 storm and its current track has it moving dangerously close to the islands. Lane could make landfall on any or multiple islands, and could bring strong winds, heavy rains, flooding, high surf and storm surge.
It is of vital importance that all students, faculty and staff keep informed of the latest developments and prepare for the possibility of the need to shelter in place or move to a public shelter. Prepare yourself and your families for the potential effects of the storm. Officials recommend a 14-day emergency supply.
For those students in our residence halls, you will receive more specific communications and instructions from your respective student housing office. However, please do not hesitate to contact them with any questions or concerns at UH Mānoa: firstname.lastname@example.org; UH Hilo (808) 932-7403. More emergency information regarding student housing at UH Mānoa and UH Hilo is also available online.
Please follow the National Weather Service, other official agencies and local media for the latest weather news.
