The Latest on a snowstorm that caused power outages in Hawaii (all times local):3:30 p.m.
David Ige says a snow storm has caused power disruptions and widespread blackouts across the state.
The governor says a few hundred thousand people in the state have been without power and more than 200,000 people have been asked to evacuate because of the weather.
Hawaiians will be without power for at least three more days, Ige said.
The storm is expected to dump up to 3 feet of snow.
The National Weather Service says the snowstorm is expected from about 10 a.m.-4 p.t.
A storm warning remains in effect for Hawaii’s northwest coast, including Hawaii’s main cities.
Hawthorne, Maui and Kauai have been ordered to close their air and water services until further notice.
The state of Hawaii will be in “extreme” drought conditions throughout the next six to eight weeks, Iglo said.
Igloo said the state’s water and electricity shortages are likely to continue for at the same time.
The snowstorm, which is expected in the area of Kaena, is expected “to bring heavy rain, and possibly even hail,” he said.
