HONOLULU (AP) - Island Air is suspending flights this weekend because of a powerful storm heading to Hawaii.

Island Air says it will be suspending Maui and Lanai flights starting Saturday afternoon. The airline will suspend all flights on Sunday.

Flights between Honolulu, Maui, and Lanai are scheduled to resume Monday.

Hawaii Tourism Authority officials say they’ve been informed some airlines are waiving change fees. Visitors in Hawaii or traveling to the islands in the coming days are advised to confirm their reservations.

Ana is now at hurricane strength and is forecast to slowly weaken to a tropical storm on Saturday and into Sunday. The storm is expected to bring heavy rainfall, flash flooding, strong and damaging winds, high surf and coastal inundation across the state from Friday through Monday.
