Police warn of Honolulu gas thefts

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow)- CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department are warning the public about a recent rash of gas theft.

Since May, there have been nine reported cases from Halawa Valley to East Oahu. Most of the thefts occurred during the night hours.

Thieves are targeting parked vehicles with plastic tanks, particularly SUV's and pick-up trucks, police say. According to authorities, the plastic tanks are easier to drill into and there is a less chance of a catastrophic spark. Siphoning is still the most common theft tactic.

No arrests have been made. Anyone caught, could face theft charges.

To avoid falling victim, park in a garage or a well-lit area; do not park on the

Street. For added security, install a motion-detecting light on your garage or on your house.

If you see any suspicious activity, call police.

“Green” was the theme at today’s environmental job fair in Waikiki.

Sponsored by Kupu, a Hawai`i non-profit organization, more than 100 students explored career opportunities with 20 “green” companies.

“As the most isolated land mass in the world and a pretty significant population, we really have the responsibility to steward our resources wisely,” Kupu Executive Director John Leong said. “We have limited water, food [and] other resources so these industries just for life in Hawai`i are important. But they’re also growing, especially in renewable energy and sustainability areas. They’re huge growth areas.

National Weather Service conducts media briefing for hurricane season

National Weather Service conducts media briefing for hurricane season

 

Hurricane season began on Saturday and the National Weather Service ensured the media is prepared to deliver accurate and timely information should an emergency occur.

NWS hosted a media briefing and simulation today at UH Manoa as part of the statewide Makani Pahili exercises.

“The media is ultimately important,” NWS Warning Coordination Meteorologist Mike Cantin said. “We [NWS] produce our forecast – our watches and warnings, advisories and tell you where the storm is – kind of what to expect from the storm and where it’s going. But most folks get their information from the media so we share [the information] and then like today, work together with the media to make sure that message is getting out.”

NWS predicts a less-than-average storm season for the Central Pacific with 1-3 storms (tropical depression, tropical storm or hurricane) until November, however they remind us that all it takes is one to cause major damage.
