The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a wind advisory until 6 p.m.

Northeast winds 20 to 30 mph with localized gusts over 50 mph may affect South Point, Pahala, Hilo, Volcano, Honokaa, Kamuela, and Waikoloa.

Winds this strong can tear off shingles, knock down tree branches, blow away tents and awnings and make it difficult to steer, especially for drivers of high profile vehicles.

Watch out for falling tree branches when walking or driving. Make sure tents and awnings are secure or take them down. Be prepared for power outages.
