Hurricane Watch Issued for Hawaii as Douglas Nears With Strong Winds, Heavy Rain, Coastal Flooding


Hurricane Douglas is forecast to sweep through Hawaii as a tropical storm or hurricane this weekend, where it could produce flash flooding, strong winds and pounding surf.

Douglas became the first hurricane of the Eastern Pacific season Wednesday, among the top five latest-forming first hurricanes for that basin in the satellite era - since the late 1960s - as noted by UNC-Charlotte graduate student Eric Webb.
