CBS’ “Hawaii Five-0” and “Magnum P.I.” have shut down production as the Category 4 Hurricane Lane edges closer to Hawaii, a rep for the studio told TheWrap on Thursday.

The storm poses the threat of life-threatening flash flooding, the Honolulu-based Central Pacific Hurricane Center said Thursday.

Both Hawaii-set shows stopped production Thursday and will not film on Friday.

Hurricane warnings are in effect for the Big Island, Maui, and Oahu, the last of which has not been under a hurricane warning for 26 years, while Kauai is under hurricane watch.

“Magnum P.I.” gives a new face to the previous Tom Selleck character, following Jay Hernandez as the decorated ex-Navy SEAL Thomas Magnum who repurposes his military skills after coming home from Afghanistan to become a private investigator. “Hawaii Five-0” is entering its ninth season this fall.

“Magnum P.I.” will premiere on CBS on Sept. 24, and “Hawaii Five-0” Season 9 will premiere on Sept. 28.
