Officials opened shelters on the Big Island and the islands of Maui, Molokai and Lanai on Wednesday.

At this time there are no changes to the cruise due to depart Honolulu the evening of August 25, a spokesperson for Norwegian said.

The cancellations come as the Canadian government warns Canadians to avoid all non-essential travel to Hawaii because of the approaching hurricane.

"Be prepared to shelter in place with 14 days of food supplies and water and any other necessities", Hawaii Gov. David Ige said at a press conference Wednesday. The watch indicates hurricane conditions are possible and that winds of at least 39 miles per hour are anticipated in the next two days.

All public schools are closed Thursday and Friday as facilities prepare to become emergency shelters.

The area is located on the earthquake-prone Ring of Fire and there have been several aftershocks of magnitude 5.4 today. It was followed almost 12 hours later by a quake measuring 6.9 magnitude and a string of powerful aftershocks.

About 7 to 12 inches of rain already had fallen on parts of the Big Island by early Thursday, the National Weather Service office in Honolulu said.

The storm's risky center could make landfall as it moves past the islands from Thursday through Saturday.

2nd UPDATE, 10:45 AM: CBS now says that production on Season 9 of Hawaii Five-O also has shut down as Hurrican Lane threatens the islands.

Hawaii Emergency Management Agency Administrator Tom Travis said there's not enough shelter space statewide and advised people who were not in flood zones to stay home.

The most powerful hurricane on record to hit Hawaii was Category 4 Iniki, which made landfall on Kauai island on September 11, 1992, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

"When it did happen, I just remember, pandemonium, it was all out craziness", she said.

The ships will be in position to provide assistance after the storm if needed, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reports.
