Flood Advisory issued for Maui until 8:15 p.m. 1/10/11
The National Weather Service has issued a Flood ADVISORY for the island of Maui until 8:15 p.m. At 5:12 p.m., radar showed moderate to heavy rain moving over the island. Locations in the advisory include, but are not limited to Maalaea, Kahului, Kihei, Spreckelsville, Kula, Makawao, Kipahulu and Hana.
The public is advised to stay away from streams, drainage ditches, and low-lying areas prone to flooding. Rainfall and runoff will also cause hazardous driving conditions due to ponding, reduced visibility and poor braking action.
Motorists and pedestrians should NOT cross fast flowing or rising water in their vehicle or on foot.
