Hurricane Douglas

200726 1900

Douglas is now north of Oahu on a westerly track. Kauai is still in danger. North Shore Oahu is getting pounded with heavy surf.

Kaneohe had 20 MPH winds with higher gusts. Rainfall was limited to a few light showers. If Douglas had passed 40 miles more to the south Kaneohe would have had 72 mph winds with heavy rain.

As it was, we had a good test of our preparedness. As usual, some people ignored the storm and others prepared.

I have water containers and a month’s supply of long term storage food. We spent a day batoning down the hatches. Everything that could fly away was either brought inside or tied down. Neighbors saw us working and came to help. Great people.
