(KHNL) - Wal-Mart's stores in Hilo and Kailua-Kona will remain open 24-hours-a-day to serve community needs in preparation for Hurricane Flossie.

The company is restocking its in-store supplies of water, batteries, canned foods and other emergency kit supplies.

Wal-Mart suggests residents check their emergency kit checklist or click on the Hawaii County Civil Defense link for emergency preparedness information.

Wal-Mart's stores hours on the other islands remain the same.
