Hurricanes Iselle & Julio: Pray for Hawaiian Islands

Aloha to all who love Hawaii:

We are asking for prayers even more during this severe tropical weather season. The news, as well as the “coconut wireless,” have all been a buzz with the word that hurricanes Iselle and Julio are heading toward our beloved Hawaiian Islands.

Pray Hawaii - Iselle - Julio

According to the following watches/warnings are in effect as of this morning:

  • A hurricane warning is in effect for Hawaii County.
  • A tropical storm warning is in effect for Maui County (Maui, Molokai, Lanai and Kahoolawe) and Oahu.
  • A tropical storm warning is in effect for Kauai County (Kauai and Niihau).
  • A flash flood watch is in effect for all of the Hawaiian islands.

Ways to Pray:

  • For peace, wisdom & preparedness for all who reside on the Hawaiian Islands.
  • For Iselle & Julio to weaken greatly & divert away from the islands.
  •  For minimal damage to occur.
  • For provision for any clean-up and repairs (if needed).
  • For everyone to be safe, without harm.

Our family resides on Maui, and our kids are home from school for the next two days in anticipation of the storm, as are all Maui kids. Thank you for your prayers for all of the Hawaiian Islands, our ohana and the land. We’ll update this blog as we’re able. Mahalo for your prayers!
