"On its forecast track, the center of Lane will move very close to or over the main Hawaiian Islands from Thursday Saturday". Rain of this magnitude raises the risk of flash flooding and landslides.

"The seriousness of the worst-case possibilities with Lane, and the rarity of the situation, call for an especially high level of preparation and vigilance among all Hawaiians", Weather Underground said, adding that the storm was heading towards "a potentially devastating encounter" with the state.

More hurricane watches were expected to be issued for other Hawaiian islands, said the Honolulu-based hurricane center.

After a miss to the south from Hector earlier in August, Lane looks poised to, at the very least, come even closer to the island chain later this week.

Hawaii residents are bracing for "life threatening" winds and flooding when Hurricane Lane hits the United States islands this week, potentially uprooting trees and causing rivers to overflow their banks, according to the National Weather Service. This is where the wind will be strongest and the rain to be heaviest if the forecast track doesn't change.

"A Hurricane Watch remains in effect for Maui County, and is now posted for Oʻahu, with tropical-storm force winds possibly beginning Thursday or Thursday night".

Maui County and Big Island schools will be closed starting Wednesday until further notice, the state Department of Education said.

State offices on Hawaii Island and Maui will be closed Wednesday through Friday, as the governor announced that nonessential state employees in the two counties will be put on administrative leave.

The east side of the Big Island has taken the brunt from previous storms and is still reeling after lava from an erupting volcano wiped out entire neighbourhoods.

Current images of the hurricane show it swirling through the Pacific Ocean south of the Hawaiian islands. It declares counties of "Hawai'i, Maui, Kalawao, Kaua'i and the City and County of Honolulu disaster areas for the goal of implementing emergency management functions", his office said.

Residents and businesses were also urged to update emergency plans.

He said: "A lot of people are comparing the similarities between Iniki and Lane". "I know people are taking trips to Costco, buying ramen, rice, the usual. Remember, if the power goes out, ATMs aren't going to be working".

American Airlines and Hawaiian Airlines issued travel advisories to customers flying to or from Hawaii.

Some customers were buying cases of bottled water at Island Grocery Depot in Kahului, Maui, manager Brian Arakaki said. "They're the ones rushing to the store", he said. "When everybody finishes work, they'll have time".
