Norman was moving north-northwest at 9 miles per hour.
Hurricane Olivia weakened Friday as it moved west toward Hawaii, the National Hurricane Center said.
The storm was the second-wettest tropical system to affect the United States and the wettest tropical system on record in Hawaii, surpassing Hurricane Hiki in 1950. By Wednesday evening, the storm's expected to have about 50 mph winds some 145 miles west of Kailua-Kona.
Even as a tropical storm, Lane cost the city about $1 million in overtime, Caldwell said.
At 11 a.m. today, the storm was 660 miles east-northeast of Hilo and 825 miles east of Honolulu.

"With our planet experiencing the effects of climate change, we are going to have to treat these kinds of repeated events as a new reality, and not only prepare accordingly, but also tackle the emissions creating this problem".
The National Weather Service says high storm rainfall from Olivia is possible with amounts of 10 to 15 inches, with isolated amounts over 20 inches. Tropical storm or hurricane conditions could be felt anywhere in the islands as significant impacts could extend well away from the center.
On the forecast track, Norman was expected to continue in a northwest direction, turning slightly more north-northwest Saturday. Since the track seems to be dependent on the intensity at long range, this isn't a particularly confident forecast.
The storm may be near the Hawaiian Islands late Tuesday, the center said, warning that tropical storm or hurricane watches could need to be issued Sunday.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
