Persistent fire danger prompts another red flag warning for Hawaii

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 07:39 a.m. HST, Sep 11, 2012

The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning this morning for the second consecutive day for all islands due to persistent dry conditions.

Although forecasters say there is a chance of showers for windward and mauka areas, moderate trade winds and low humidity present a fire risk, especially in drier leeward areas.

Trades are expected to diminish later this week. The red flag warning is in effect until 6 p.m.

I have always believed that most fires start close to roadways. Some Drivers and passengers just throw their still lit cigarettes out the window. There should be a very heavy penalty and tossing anything out of a moving vehicle should be strictly enforced.
