If the Pacific Hurricane Daniel continues as predicted, then we should get hit sometime on Thursday. By then it should only be a very strong tropical storm with sustained winds of 60mph (96kph). I'll keep you updated.

Satellite image:

Currently the maximum sustained winds are 110mph (177kph),with gusts to 130mph (209kph). It is moving WNW at 17 mph (27kph)

Currently the minimum pressure is 965mb.

The above images are "hot links" and should change as time passes.

We should get all the usual flooding zones that we get when the winter monsoons hit but worse. Which means Kihei might be isolated for a while in the worst case scenario.

The junction of SR-31 (Pi'ilani hwy), SR-310 (north Kihei rd) and SR-311 (Mokulele hwy) are only 5 feet (1.5 meters) above sea level and will easily be closed do to storm surge flooding.

I live about 140 feet (42.67 meters) above sea level, so should weather it pretty well.

Well, i sure hope that things go alright for you. Hopefully it'll weaken by the time it gets to you (ok, it's a slim chance, i know, but still). I've developed a serious respect for hurricanes after Katrina & Rita last year. And most people aren't even aware of the hurricanes that are in the Pacific.

Best of luck to you..
