Pewa crosses dateline, could threaten Wake Island

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 09:38 a.m. HST, Aug 18, 2013

Tropical Storm Pewa crossed the International Date Line and has moved out of the Central Pacific Hurricane Zone.

The Joint Typhoon Warning Center at Pearl Harbor said the storm was about 833 miles east-southeast of Wake Island early this morning.

Maximum sustained winds were 65 mph and the storm is expected to strengthen into a typhoon when winds reach 74 mph.

Pewa  is moving northwest could come close to Wake Island by Wednesday.

Closer to Hawaii, forecasters are watching a weak low pressure system that was about 1,100 miles east-southeast of Hilo at 8 a.m.

The system has only a 10 percent chance of  developing into a tropical cyclone, but it could bring rain to the Big Island by mid-week.

Prepare for mass casualties. The birds are gonna get it good. SA please keep us updated on the mass casualties expected on Wake Island. I want a body count. Do your job SA. I also need to be updated on Pewa where ever it goes. As long as it's still alive the public needs to be updated, even if it's in the middle of the ocean.
