Big Island Now Meterologist Malika Dudley interviewed National Weather Service Pacific Region Deputy Director Tom Evans this morning, who presented an update on Lane, now a tropical storm.

BULLET POINTS

  • Tropical Storm Warning dropped for Big Island
  • Warning in place for other islands as of 8 a.m., Aug. 25
  • 115 miles S of O‘ahu moving very slowly NNW
  • As it moves west, warnings and watches will begin to be dropped
  • Deep moisture will likely produce rain through tomorrow

BIG ISLAND

  • Winds not expected but more rain is forecast
  • The Big Island has already received over 40 inches in some areas
  • Roads have been closed due to flooding and landslides
  • Residents have been evacuated
  • There are still flood waters coming out of the mountains, that is why flash flood warning is still in effect even though it may not be raining right now
  • The soil is saturated, so any rainfall poses a danger for flash flooding
