Whew, that was a close one! We here on O‘ahu were very fortunate to escape the wrath of Hurricane Lane. However, the people of Hawai‘i Island weren't so lucky. Amazingly, Mountain View received a record 52.02 inches of rain from 8am on August 22nd to 8am on August 26th. My prayers and thoughts are with Big Island folks and also those on Maui who were impacted by the Hurricane Lane-related wildfires. It's important that we do all we can to stay prepared for hurricanes, because hurricane season doesn't end until November. I hope to see you at the 8th Annual Get Ready Ewa Beach Emergency Preparedness Fair, which will take place at Ewa Mahiko District Park on September 8th from 9am to 1pm.
A big shout-out to Little League World Series Champs, Honolulu! They did Hawai‘i proud by defeating South Korea 3-0 on September 26th.
