A reporter in Hawaii is preparing for Hurricane Sandy and a second hurricane.
The man is an emergency communications specialist with the U.S. Navy who has been living in Honolulu for four months.
He told ABC News, “My goal was to go to a city where I have a better understanding of how to get help.”

A hurricane warning remains in effect in all but one of the most heavily populated U.P. states, including Hawaii, Massachusetts, New York and Washington.
Sandy struck Hawaii on Friday and dumped at least 10 inches of rain, including up to 13 inches in some areas.
It also caused flash flooding and damaging winds.
On Sunday, the National Hurricane Center upgraded the storm to a Category 4 hurricane and the National Weather Service declared a mandatory evacuation for the islands of Oahu and Maui.
On Monday, the city of Honolulu posted a message on its Facebook page urging people to be cautious and not to travel into the storm.
The city said it would provide shelter for anyone staying in hotel rooms, restaurants and other places.
It urged anyone with questions to call 1-800-733-2733 or visit the city’s website at www.hokiecity.com.
