As Hawaii is located in the tropics, it occasionally comes under threat of tropical cyclones, or hurricanes, as they are known in the United States. Such a storm, named Guillermo, has been moving toward the Hawaiian Islands for the past weak. As of 5 AM today, it continues to weaken significantly and is passing well north of the Islands. The next few days bring an increased chance of rain and perhaps strong winds. All attendees are encouraged to check the weather regularly, as forecasts do change, and take recommended precautionary actions as advised. At this time we do not expect any disruptions to planned General Assembly activities.
For those attending tonight's banquet, it will still be outside on the Great Lawn this evening.
