Hawaii County is closely monitoring the development of Hurricane Dora and other related weather patterns as the hurricane makes its way into the Central Pacific. The storm is expected to pass well South of Hawaii Island, and no significant impacts resulting from the hurricane are expected. However, related weather patterns are expected to cause strong tradewinds and dry conditions beginning on Monday, August 7, and strengthening through Tuesday, August 8.
