HI-EMA urges everyone to have emergency supplies for at least 14 days.

Hawai‘i’s hurricane season in the Central Pacific region runs through November, which means residents and visitors need to prepare and plan. The Hawai‘i Emergency Management Agency (HI-EMA) offers these tips for residents and visitors: 1) Check where you live, work and play for potential hazards, such as blocked drainage or tree limbs that could blow through a window or roof; 2) Fill up on gas and charge mobile phones, in case power fails or you need to move someplace safer; 3) Make sure you have water and food supplies, necessary medicine, masks and sanitizer, a battery-powered radio and other emergency supplies for at least 14 days.
