Kaua´i, Ni´ihau Under Flash Flood Watch
The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a flash flood watch for the Kaua´i and Ni´ihau through Tuesday night.
Deep moisture will spread over the entire state Monday and linger into at least Tuesday, bringing the potential for persistent heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding.
Flood prone roads and other low lying areas may be closed due to elevated runoff and overflowing streams. Urban areas may receive more significant flooding and property damage due to rapid runoff.
Be prepared to take action if a flash flood warning is issued. If you experience heavy rain or rising waters, head to higher ground immediately.
A flash flood watch means that conditions are favorable for flash flooding. Flash Flooding is LIFE THREATENING. Do not cross fast flowing water in your vehicle or on foot.
