Major Hurricane Lane is forecast to close in on Hawaii and threaten lives and property on the islands due to pounding surf, flash flooding, mudslides and strong winds.

The farther west Lane tracks prior to making an anticipated northward turn for a time may lower the severity of impacts.

In lieu of a direct hit, “Lane has the potential of bringing the state of Hawaii serious and perhaps record damage,” according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski.

The ultimate severity of impacts will depend on the exact track and strength of Lane.
