Hawaii braces for impact of monster Hurricane Lane: US Navy ships and submarines leave port as 100mph Category Four storm begins to lash the outer islands and residents stockpile food

Hawaii residents emptied store shelves Wednesday, claimed the last sheets of plywood to board up windows and drained gas pumps as Hurricane Lane churned toward the state.

The category 4 storm could slam into the islands Thursday with winds exceeding 100 mph, making it the most powerful storm to hit Hawaii since Hurricane Iniki in 1992.

The National Weather Service said a hurricane warning was issued for Maui County, the Big Island and Oahu and hurricane watch was in effect for Kauai.

U.S. Navy ships and submarines based in Hawaii have been instructed to leave port to avoid damage
