Hurricane Ana did not hit Hawaii on Saturday, but maintained its strength and came as close as 155 miles to the islands, according to Weather.com.
Hawaiian Gov. Neil Abercrombie declared a state of emergency earlier this week as the storm grew from a tropical storm to a hurricane, a rarity in the islands.
The storm produced high waves and strong winds of 80 mph, which were expected to continue through Saturday. The hurricane is expected to gradually weaken to a tropical storm by early Sunday morning.
The northwest movement for the storm also showed a path that would keep it south from the island and not hitting land.
