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 415 p.m. HST if heavy rain persists.
