On August 21, 2018, Hawaii Governor David Ige signed an emergency proclamation in advance of the arrival of Hurricane Lane. The emergency proclamation allows the state to be proactive by pre-positioning state assets to support county emergency responders. On August 22, the President approved Governor Ige’s request for presidential disaster declaration to provide appropriate assistance for emergency measures to save lives and protect property and public health and safety, or to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the designated areas.
With assistance from NLM’s Disaster Information Management Research Center (DIMRC), we have compiled hurricane resources for Hawaii, including information guides with curated, reliable information from vetted federal, state, and local governments and organizations.
