Both North and South Kohala are under a flood advisory for the next several hours.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory for the Kohala Districts until 9:45 a.m. Monday. One to three inches of rain per hour is forecast during that time.

Due to the Flood Advisory, the following are issued:

  • Stay away from streams, drainage ditches and low lying areas prone to flooding.
  • Rainfall and runoff will also cause hazardous driving conditions due to ponding, reduced visibility and poor braking action.
  • Do not attempt to cross flowing water; turn around don’t drown.
  • Be aware that road closures may occur without notice.
  • Be on the alert for malfunctioning traffic signals. Treat flashing traffic lights as a four-way stop.
