Governor Neil Abercrombie signed an emergency proclamation in preparation of tropical storm Flossie.

The proclamation provides certain authorities that will allow the state to more effectively prepare for the arrival of TS Flossie, expected to make landfall Monday morning on the eastern end of Hawaii Island.

Local, state and federal governmental agencies and non-profit partners are coordinating and working together to minimize the impact of the projected high wind, waves, and torrential rain.

The emergency proclamation covers such items as access to the major disaster fund to cover staff overtime and other expenses, allowing emergency procurement of needed supplies and resources, as well as activation of the National Guard, if needed.
