* flood advisory for...
the island of Hawaii in Hawaii County

* until 500 PM HST

* at 201 PM HST, radar indicated heavy rain over the slopes above
Hilo and Volcano Village. The most intense rainfall was over upper

Keaau, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Volcano, Hawaiian Paradise
Park, Honomu, Mountain View and Papaikou.

foot. Turn around, don't drown.


This advisory may need to be extended beyond 500 PM HST if heavy rain
persists.

* Flash Flood Watch for Kahoolawe, Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Oahu
and The Big Island.

* From Monday through Tuesday afternoon

* heavy showers associated with an upper trough and cold front
moving down the island chain could result in flash flooding
Monday through Tuesday. The latest guidance indicates the

County and The Big Island.

overflow their banks, leading to life threatening flash
flooding.

to flash flooding. Flash flooding is a very dangerous situation.

You should monitor later forecasts and be prepared to take action
should flash flood warnings be issued.
