Even as its core was being pulled apart by strong wind shear on Friday, Hurricane Lane (demoted to a tropical storm on Friday evening) continued to trigger an array of havoc across the Hawaiian Islands. Torrential rains were spreading northward across Oahu to Maui after Lane’s outer rainbands dropped more than 30” on parts of the Big Island, where flooding was described by the Central Pacific Hurricane Center as “catastrophic”. Meanwhile, two fast-moving wildfires broke out on Friday in the drier downslope flow along Maui’s west coast, causing at least one injury.
