The storm currently has sustained winds of 60 mph, with occasional higher gusts, and continues to move west at 17 mph. It was last positioned 275 miles east-northeast of Kahului and 360 miles east of Honolulu.

    A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere in the warning area within 36 hours.

    Forecasters believe the center of the storm will turn west-southwest sometime today, affecting Hawaiʻi and Maui Counties tonight into early Wednesday. Weather officials expect Oʻahu will feel the effects of the storm tomorrow.

    A high surf warning has been issued for east-facing shores of the Big Island and Maui County, and a high surf advisory is in effect for east-facing shores of Oahu.

Port status is currently open to all commercial and recreational traffic. Officials remind the public to stay off the water and clear of beaches as storm condition arrive with search and rescue capabilities declining as storm conditions strengthen.

    Governor David Ige signed an emergency proclamation that will provide relief for disaster damages, losses and suffering caused by Hurricane Olivia. The proclamation declares the counties of Hawai‘i, Maui, Kalawao, Kaua‘i and the City and County of Honolulu disaster areas for the purpose of implementing emergency management functions. The proclamation also authorizes the expenditure of state monies as appropriated for the speedy and efficient relief of damages, losses, and suffering resulting from Hurricane Olivia. Gov. David Ige said, “We’re monitoring this storm closely and taking steps now to ensure that we’re prepared for its impacts to the state. A tropical storm could bring heavy rain and flooding, especially in places that are saturated from previous storms. Now is the time to prepare."
