HONOLULU (AP) — Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell is urging residents to take the threat from Hurricane Douglas seriously as the storm packing 85 mph winds swirls just north of the Hawaiian Islands. The mayor says his island of Oahu has repeatedly gotten lucky as hurricanes threatening the city have ultimately fizzled out or veered away. But this time he predicted strong winds and storm surge on parts of the island where roads and homes are very close to the water. He says it could be life-threatening. Officials are urging residents to stay indoors and tie down loose materials.
