Hurricane Lane could be on course to make a direct hit on one or more of Hawaii’s islands later this week.

Depending on the exact track and strength of Lane, Hawaii could be battered with strong winds, flash flooding and mudslides by the weekend.

Hawaii Governor David Ige signed an emergency proclamation ahead of the hurricane to warn of the potential upcoming dangers.

He also tweeted: “All public schools and HIDOE offices on Hawaii Island and in Maui County will be closed Wednesday, August 22, until further notice.”

Accuweather meteorologists predict Lane will track about 80 miles southwest of the Big Island and 60 miles southwest of O’ahu.

While a direct hit is deemed unlikely, they warned the risk could not be ruled out.

AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski believes there will still be destruction even if the hurricane does not directly hit the islands.

He said: “Lane has the potential of bringing the state of Hawaii serious and perhaps record damage.

“All residents and interests on the islands should closely monitor Hurricane Lane and pay particular attention to local officials on possible evacuations and preparations.”

Lane is currently at Category 5 strength but could weaken as it turns northwestward near the Hawaiian Islands.

This hurricane is one of two category 5 hurricanes to pass within 350 miles of Hawaii, according to the National Weather Service office in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The last hurricane to do this was John in 1994.
