A hurricane warning has been issued for the Big Island, including Hilo, and hurricane watches are in place for Maui and Oahu, including Honolulu.

Though Hurricane Lane is expected to weaken to a category 3 storm by Thursday afternoon, it is still forecasted to remain a risky storm as is draws closer to the Hawaiian Islands. Roofs and walls will collapse.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 40 miles from Lane's center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 140 miles.

A hurricane watch means that hurricane conditions are possible within the watch area, according to the National Weather Service's (NWS) Central Pacific Hurricane Center in Honolulu.

The National Weather Service issued a hurricane warning Tuesday evening for the Big Island (Hawaii island). A watch is typically issued 48 hours before the anticipated first occurrence of tropical-storm-force winds, conditions that make outside preparations hard or unsafe.
