No, the weather isn’t always perfect in Hawaii
Before Tuesday, no Hawaii resident had received an alert for a tornado warning since December 2008, a span of 4,110 days. The island chain is in the midst of a “Kona storm," a seasonal cyclone that typically forms a couple of times each winter. #hiwx pic.twitter.com/FmRR0Mh2hF — NWSHonolulu (@NWSHonolulu) March 17, 2020Thankfully, no tornadoes were confirmed and there were no reports of damage. Tuesday morning’s active weather resets the days since NWS Honolulu’s last tornado warning to zero. In case you’re wondering, the National Weather Service office in Eureka, CA has gone the longest without a tornado warning at 6,303 days!
