Climate Change is real - our oceans are getting hotter.

The closest approach on record by a tropical storm to the island of Oahu resulted in torrential rains in excess of ten inches there as Tropical Storm Darby passed just 40 miles to the south and west of Honolulu, Oahu on Sunday with sustained winds of 40 mph. No other named storm on record has passed that close to Honolulu or Oahu since accurate records began in 1949. Rainfall amounts of over ten inches in the 24 hours ending at 3:45 am HST Monday were reported at five locations on the eastern half of Oahu from Darby:

11.09" Moanalua RG
10.94" Nuuanu Upper
10.81" Luluku
10.70" Waihee Pump
10.04" Palisades


Monday morning Hawaiian radar showed that Darby continued to stream bands of heavy rain over the island, and satellite loops showed that Darby still had plenty of heavy thunderstorms on the northeast side of its circulation. Over the weekend, Darby also brought rains in excess of ten inches to West Wailuaiki, Maui (12.63" and Paauilo, on the Big Island (10.19". There have been several road closures on Oahu due to flooding, and as of 10 pm HST Sunday, the Honolulu fire department reported 59 calls from residents who needed to be evacuated from their homes due to flooding. About 1,000 customers have lost power from the storm thus far. Darby, downgraded to a tropical depression at 11 am EDT Monday, should cease deluging Oahu by Monday afternoon as the storm pulls away to the west.

Stay safe folks

2. Must have been scary since they never reach you

I was just happy to hear that it had weakened. I can't imagine the devastation if it had hit you because you're not prepared to handle hurricanes since they never come your way - Now we haveNEW RULES that the deniers will have to follow
