Aloha Owners and Residents,

Please see below some important information regarding the weather for the next few days:

FLOOD WATCH FOR ALL ISLANDS THROUGH MONDAY

FLOOD WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT THROUGH MONDAY AFTERNOON…

* WHAT – Flash flooding caused by excessive rainfall continues to be possible.

* WHERE – All Hawaiian Islands

* WHEN – Through Monday afternoon.

* IMPACTS – Significant flooding may occur due to the overflow of streams and drainages. Roads in several areas may be closed, along with property damage in urban or low lying spots due to runoff.  Isolated highways, such as the Belt Highway in the Big Island`s Kau District, and Piilani Highway on Maui, may be closed in one or more locations, resulting in long detours or even the isolation of  communities. Landslides may also occur in areas with steep terrain.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS:

A prolonged period of heavy rainfall is anticipated as a slow-moving Kona low develops west of Kauai, and moisture associated with a front stalls over the islands. In the short term, the stalling front will bring the greatest potential for heavy rain over Maui and the Big Island. As the low forms west of Kauai on Saturday, moisture associated with the front will gradually spread back toward Oahu and Kauai County. This will bring the threat of heavy rainfall to all islands well into next week.
