No problem as of 5 pm. The storm made a direct hit but sort of broke apart. Best I can figure is that it is crossing Ka'u, but you wouldn't know it. No wind. No rain. That part seems to have gone to the east thus far.
It is very strange right now. We can hear lots of thunder coming from the slopes of Mauna Loa. But only the merest gentle breeze and a very light off & on drizzle hints of the big storm out there. Apparently most of the rain is out in the ocean.
Only time will tell if Ka'u gets much from the storm tonight. But since it appears to be veering away, perhaps not. The east side of the island has gotten heavy rain. The north has gotten wind. Us.....nada.
