  • Roller shades or track got slightly bent due and cannot properly to a strong gust of wind. This is minor compared to those who had major damage to their homes (i.e. roof damage). I don’t believe there were any serious injuries reported (?)

  • Strong winds like this is a good test of your structure and what to reinforce since it will get a lot worse is a big hurricane actually hits this island directly.

  • The wind gusts were strong at times but of course nothing like we would face in a major tropical storm or even a moderate hurricane.
    The number of outages make you wonder how we would fare in a major storm and it seems to indicate that our infrastructure is not prepared to deal with
    even a moderately strong storm let alone a hurricane. Especially here on Oahu we are looking at a major disaster and the likelihood of many deaths among the sick
    whose lives depend on having electric power.

  • For anyone that lost power over the weekend, thank The Outdoor Circle. That is one of the main organizations that keeps utilities and the government from maintaining ROW areas correctly. There should be no trees near utility lines or thoroughfares. Send them a case of wine when another tree falls across a road and kills an innocent person.

    Knowing this, I stay off the road and at ready for power outages when the weather is this bad.
