... Flash Flood Watch in effect through this afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has expanded the

* Flash Flood Watch to include Kahoolawe, Lanai, Maui and
Molokai.

* Through this afternoon

* an approaching upper-level disturbance will enhance the deep
moisture already in place. Slow- moving and persistent heavy
showers and thunderstorms will result in the threat of flash
flooding.

* Heavy rainfall could result in low spots in roads becoming
dangerous and impassible due to severe runoff. Debris in
streams and gulches could clog bridges and culverts resulting
in dangerous flooding. Isolated landslides could also occur.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flash Flood Watch means that conditions are favorable for flash
flooding. Flash flooding is life threatening. Do not cross fast
flowing water in your vehicle or on foot.

Monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action if a Flash
Flood Warning is issued. If you experience heavy rain or rising
water, head to higher ground immediately.
