Governor Green has proclaimed May 21-27, 2023 as “Hurricane Preparedness Week in Hawai'i”. He will present the proclamation to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center on May 25 during a news conference in which NOAA will announce the outlook for the 2023 central Pacific hurricane season.
To help residents prepare in advance of hurricane season, NWS Honolulu will share information on a different topic each day during Hurricane Preparedness Week in Hawai'i:
- Know Your Risk: Water & Wind
- Prepare Before Hurricane Season
- Understand Forecast Information
- Get Moving When a Storm Threatens
- Stay Protected During Storms
- Use Caution After Storms
- Take Action Today
Hurricane Preparedness Week focuses on what you can do now, ahead of time when the weather is quiet, to safeguard your home, your business, your family, and yourself.
Preparing for a hurricane in Hawai'i isn’t the same as preparing on the mainland. We can’t drive out of the hurricane zone. We are also more vulnerable to being cutoff and isolated and have to be ready to support ourselves and our neighbors. With that in mind, we’ll also include links and resources from local agencies and organizations to provide more details with a Hawai'i focus.
Look for information on a different preparedness topic each day, posted in the “Top News” section of our website (weather.gov/hawaii) and on our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube).
