Tracking Ana: Is Waikiki ready?

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

In Waikiki, the tourism industry is preparing for tropical storm Ana. And if the storm hits Oahu, many hotels will be putting sandbags on their beach fronts.

City officials are in daily contact with Waikiki hotels, ensuring there's adequate shelter space and that there's enough transportation for tourists and hotel workers.

Back in August, during tropical storm Iselle, bus services to Waikiki was sharply reduced, making it hard for workers to get to and from Waikiki's hotels.

Many visitors that we spoke with are taking the storm warnings in stride, but some are concerned that flight cancellations could make getting home problematic.
