Picture of the Governor's Proclamation for Hurricane Preparedness Week in HawaiiHurricane Preparedness Week focuses on what you can do now, ahead of time when the weather is quiet, to safeguard your home, your business, your family, and yourself.  To help residents prepare in advance of hurricane season, NWS Honolulu shared information on a different topic each day during Hurricane Preparedness Week:

Preparing for a hurricane in Hawaii isn’t the same as preparing on the mainland.  We can’t drive out of the hurricane zone.  We are also more vulnerable to being cutoff and isolated and have to be ready to support ourselves and our neighbors.  With that in mind, we also discussed each of these topics with local experts to provide more details with a Hawaii focus.

On April 29, Governor Ige presented a proclamation declaring the week of May 1-7, 2022 as "Hurricane Preparedness Week" in Hawaii. A recording of the presentation, which included speakers from the National Weather Service and Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, is available here:
