NWS Issues New Wind Advisory for Big Island
The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for the Big Island through 6 am Tuesday.
Southeast winds 30 to 50 mph are expected, with localized gusts over 60 mph. The affected areas include Big Island summits.
Winds this strong can make driving and walking difficult. The winds can forcefully open doors and damage hinges or slam doors shut, possibly causing injuries.
