    Dang.....Hawaii gonna have one bad night tonight when this bad boy hits with 140mph winds. The Navy has already sent all warships out to sea!

    Arizona Memorial boat tours suspended due to Hurricane Lane

    Of course, every climate nut will be in here by the weekend throwing bombs about this storm being related to global warming. :gay:
    Problem is, the US Marines out there call this a "rare event", the last hitting in 1992 and will be 5th since 1950. Warm waters + central Pacific means every so often, cyclones will strike in Hawaii. Pray for these folks.....

    Democrat government. False nuclear missile alerts. Bomb-throwing volcano. Earthquakes. Hurricane.

    Ummmm ... people still live there?

    Yep, and live pretty well. Well, the islands dodged the bullet this time.
