Hawai‘i Gov. David Ige has signed a supplementary proclamation to extend relief for disaster damages resulting from Hurricane Lane.

While the hurricane weakened rapidly on Friday, Aug. 24, the storm’s moisture was spread over a greater area and resulted in prolonged periods of slow moving, heavy rain that continues to impact the state. In addition, high winds from the storm spread and expanded wildfires in the County of Maui and the City and County of Honolulu.

The supplemental proclamation issued Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018, is effective through Oct. 27, 2018. The governor issued the first emergency proclamation for Hurricane Lane on Aug. 21, 2018. Gov. Ige’s request for a Presidential Disaster Declaration for the State of Hawai‘i was approved on Aug. 22, 2018.
