Hawaii – A major cold-season Kona storm system is bringing significant precipitation totals to Hawaii, including up to 25 inches of rain, a foot of mountain snow and hurricane-force winds on the summits of the Big Island. A rare blizzard warning was issued for Mauna Kea, whose nearly 14,000-foot summit was a winter wonderland over the weekend. Flood watches are up for the entire island chain, with flash flood warnings issued for the middle of the archipelago. Record cool temperatures are also visiting the nation’s 50th state, made to feel cooler by winds gusting up to 50 mph even in the lowlands. The dichotomous weather will make it technically possible to ski and surf in the same hour for residents of the Big Island.
Washington, USA- Near-record flooding in Washington State drowned cattle, demolished homes and damaged equipment. Broken supply chains are making it even harder to recover.
