The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a Flood Advisory for Maui at 2:33 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 12, 2018, until 5:30 p.m.

At 2:31 p.m., radar indicated heavy rain along the north shore of Maui near Ha‘ikū.

Rain was falling at a rate of one-and-a-half-inches per hour.

Locations in the advisory include but are not limited to Kahului, Kahakuloa, Pu‘unene, Hali‘imaile, Pauwela, Waikapu, Kipahulu, Pa‘ia, Makawao, Wailuku, Waiehu and Haiku-Pauwela.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

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.

Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle, or on foot. Turn around, don’t drown.

This advisory may need to be extended beyond 5:30 p.m. if heavy rain
persists.

A Flash Flood Watch is also in effect for all Hawaiian Islands.
