A Flood Watch and a Winter Storm Watch are out for the entire region late Tuesday through early Thursday. Heavy rain develops Tuesday night into Wednesday morning and may put down 1”-3” in some areas. Arctic air pushes in from west to east on Wednesday with heavy sleet and snow taking over. That setup could produce several inches of accumulation. Snow will slowly end from west to east Thursday as bitterly cold air continues to push in.
HILO, Hawaii (AP) - Hawaii authorities say the second shark attack in the state in less than a week has left a 16-year-old surfer with leg injuries.
The Hawaii County Fire Department said the boy suffered injuries on both legs after he was bitten Sunday afternoon southeast of Hilo. He was airlifted to Hilo Medical Center for treatment.
The boy's condition isn't clear. A call to the hospital's spokeswoman was not immediately returned.
The Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources closed ocean waters along the Pohoiki coastline after the attack.
Earlier Sunday, officials closed Hapuna Beach on the Big Island's northwestern shore after lifeguards spotted a shark.
On Wednesday, a shark bit off the arm of a 20-year-old German tourist who was snorkeling in Maui.
