Hurricane Lane is expected to turn toward the main Hawaiian Islands later this week. Hawaii and Maui County currently under hurricane watch. While it's impossible to predict the scope of the impact, heavy rains, high winds and surf are expected.
If you are currently staying at a Chase 'N Rainbows property, please assist us by bringing in all furniture from the lanai before noon on Wednesday, August 22. While we hope the storm stays south of Maui, if there is a significant storm event, please follow the storm procedure in place at your resort.
