Government officials and residents prepare for Hurricane Jimena

By 67AM KPUA News

Big Island residents and government officials are preparing for what looks to be a glancing blow by Hurricane Jimena early Monday morning.

The hurricane, about 215 miles southeast of Hilo at 5 p.m. Sunday, was moving westward at approximately 20 mph and was forecast to pass within 50 miles of South Point early Monday.

State, County, and industry officials have been gathered for most of the day at Hawaii County Civil Defense headquarters in Hilo under the direction of Civil Defense Administrator Troy Kindred and former Civil Defense Director and current Mayor, Harry Kim. The group has been tracking the storm and preparing for numerous potential scenarios.

Some residents and local businesses have taken the Hurricane watch seriously and have prepared by boarding up windows and securing their belongings. Local retailers report increased sales of emergency supplies islandwide.
