The Flash Flood Watch is now in effect for

* The Big Island.

* Through Thursday afternoon

* deep moisture associated with Hurricane Madeline will affect The
Big Island through Thursday... bringing the threat for heavy
rainfall and flooding. The greatest initial flood threat will be
over the windward slopes this morning... with the entire island
experiencing a flood threat this afternoon through Thursday.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

should flash flood warnings be issued.




Tropical Storm Warning
Issued: 12:00 PM HST Aug. 31, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Precautionary/preparedness actions...
precautionary/preparedness actions...

Everyone should now be inside. Remain alert and away from windows
and external doors.

Listen for possible flood or tornado warnings.


... Winds...
gusts to 60 mph have already been measured near the Kohala Mountains
upslope from Kawaihae. A wind gust to 51 mph occurred at Kamuela Airport
late this morning. In some areas... sustained winds of 45 to 65 mph with
gusts to 80 mph will occur through tonight. The areas most likely to
have the strongest winds will be over mountainous terrain... through
passes... and where winds blow downslope. Winds are forecast to fall
below 39 mph for all areas by early Thursday morning.

Winds this strong would be very dangerous and airborne debris
could produce widespread damage. Any loose outdoor items would
become projectiles... causing possible injury. Other possible wind
damage would include... downed large trees and power lines... and
significant roof and structure damage... especially to weaker
structures.

Extensive damage to power lines and poles could result in
widespread power outages that could last from several days to
weeks.

... Storm surge and storm tide...
large and damaging surf is expected along east facing shores.
Surf will build today... and peak at 15 to 25 feet late this
afternoon through tonight. Wave runup may cause significant
coastal flooding and damage to coastal properties and
infrastructure... including roadways. Of particular concern is the
the Kalapana-Kapoho Highway between Pohoiki and Kapoho. Powerful
longshore and rip currents will be present at most beaches. Large
breaking waves and strong currents may impact Harbor entrances
and channels causing challenging boat handling.

... Inland flooding...
a Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the entire area. Outer
rainbands from Madeline have moved onshore and additional heavy
rainfall will continue today and tonight. Total rain accumulations
of 5 to 10 inches are possible... with isolated maximum amounts
near 15 inches... especially over windward portions of The Big
Island. This rainfall may lead to dangerous flash floods and
mudslides. Refer to the watch for more details.
