Hawaii Kai carnival reopens after winds weaken

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 06:51 p.m. HST, Mar 16, 2014

Strong wind prompted organizers of the Hawaii Kai Community Carnival to open at 4 p.m. Sunday, rather than noon as previously planned, Donna Smith, vice president of E.K. Fernandez Shows, said.

A high wind warning remains in effect in the isles until 6 p.m., according to the National Weather Service. 

Strong northeasterly winds of 25 to 35 mph are expected to affect the entire state through late Sunday afternoon -- accelerating down leeward mountain slopes, over ridges and through mountain passes to produce powerful gusts of up to 50 mph, the agency said. 

The carnival closed early on Saturday at 4 p.m. because gusts of 50 to 55 mph were expected around 6 p.m.
