Governor Green has proclaimed May 19-25, 2024 as "Hurricane Preparedness Week in Hawaii".  His representative will present the proclamation to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center on May 21 during a news conference in which NOAA will announce the outlook for the 2024 central Pacific hurricane season.

To help residents prepare in advance of hurricane season, NWS Honolulu will share information on a different topic each day during Hurricane Preparedness Week in Hawaii:

Hurricane 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.

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'll also include links and resources from local agencies and organizations to provide more details with a Hawaii focus.

Look for information on a different preparedness topic each day, posted in the “Top News” section of our website ( and on our social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube).
