INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Preparing for Hurricanes

 

On its approach to the Hawaiian Islands last year, Hurricane Lane dumped an historic amount of rain on the Big Island, causing major flooding that damaged homes, roads and other infrastructure, without even being a direct hit. The storm also caused flooding on Kauaʻi. At one point, Lane intensified to Category 5 strength and was one of two tropical systems to cause damage in Hawaiʻi last season. A new hurricane season starts June 1. Is Hawaiʻi prepared? Are you?

 

Here are links to information and resources that can help you prepare:

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI
Hiker Rescue Fines

 

The number of mountain rescues statewide continues to grow every year, with rescues on Oʻahu nearly tripling over a 10-year span ending in 2016. Emergency rescue squads are often called upon to rescue people who are trespassing on public property. Should the government charge these lawbreakers for the rescue service? Join us for a conversation on proposed Hiker Rescue Fines on the next INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI.

PBS Hawaiʻi reschedules live KĀKOU town hall for Oct. 25Due to the unpredictability of Tropical Storm Olivia’s effects, PBS Hawai‘i has postponed its live statewide conversation about “The Future of Work” until Oct. 25. This KĀKOU – Hawai‘i’s Town Hall was originally scheduled for Thursday.

 

The two-hour live program with 40 studio participants and social media input will ask: Are we preparing ourselves and our children for a future where technology will transform the workplace – and our lives?

 

Representatives from government, business, labor, education and nonprofit organizations will come together for this community conversation about what’s referred to as “the fourth Industrial Revolution.” What does this revolution look like, and what do these transformational changes mean for Hawai‘i’s economy and employment landscape? Is this an opportunity to reshape the future of work in Hawai‘i?

 

The discussion airs on PBS Hawai‘i on Oct. 25 from 8:00 to 10:00 pm. A live stream will also be available on pbshawaii.org and PBS Hawai‘i’s Facebook page. Viewers are invited to join the discussion by emailing kakou@pbshawaii.org using the #PBSKakou hashtag on Twitter, or leaving a comment on the Facebook live stream.

 

KĀKOU – Hawai‘i’s Town Hall is a periodic series of live town hall-style discussions around pivotal topics that affect our Islands.
