Hur­ri­cane on hori­zon

The Daily Herald - - NATION & WORLD -

HONOLULU — Res­i­dents of Hawaii’s Big Is­land were evac­u­at­ing an­i­mals and stock­pil­ing wa­ter Tues­day, brac­ing for what could be the first hur­ri­cane to make land­fall in the state in decades. The Na­tional Weather Ser­vice is­sued a hur­ri­cane warn­ing as the ma­jor Cat­e­gory 3 storm dubbed Made­line hur­tled west to­ward the is­land. Fore­cast­ers are ex­pect­ing Made­line to pass just south of the Big Is­land around 2 a.m. Thurs­day. But if the storm track shifts slightly to the north, the eye of the storm could pass over land.
