Tropical storm Olivia approaches Hawaii with wind, rain – Fox News

Civil servants in Hawaii urged residents and visitors to be prepared when a strong tropical storm approached the island state.

Olivia was a few hundred kilometers east of Hilo on Monday with a maximum sustained wind of 70 mph (115 km / h). It was relegated from a hurricane earlier in the day after windbreak weakened the storm.

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell warned of complacency, noting tropical storms have caused flooding in Honolulu in recent years.

"We do not know what it will look like when Olivia approaches the Hawaiian islands, so please, people, do not let your guard," Caldwell said.
