454 am HST Sat Jul 23 2016

... Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through Sunday afternoon...

The Flash Flood Watch continues for

* Kahoolawe... Lanai... Maui... Molokai and The Big Island.

* Through Sunday afternoon

* the center of Tropical Storm Darby is forecast to move over...
or very close to... The Big Island today... and the islands of
Maui County late tonight into Sunday morning. Excessive
rainfall is expected to become widespread on The Big Island
today... and over Maui County this afternoon into tonight.

* In addition to flood prone areas... heavy rain events of this
size may cause flooding in areas outside designated flood
zones. Storm total rainfall amounts are forecast to be between
10 and 15 inches... with locally higher amounts possible. Low
spots in roads can become dangerous and impassable due to
severe runoff. High amounts of debris in streams and gulches
may clog bridges and culverts resulting in dangerous flooding
which could occur outside the normal channels... and could also
lead to significant property damage.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions may develop that lead
to flash flooding. Flash flooding is very dangerous.

You should monitor later forecasts and get prepared for flash
flooding this weekend. Never drive into areas where water covers
the Road. Turn around... Don/T drown.
