A flash flood watch continues for Maui and the Big Island until 6 a.m. Thursday (March 5).

Heavy rain will bring the threat of flash flooding on Maui and the Big Island. The highest threat will be on the windward sides of Maui and the Big Island where tradewind flow will focus the rain showers.

Campers and hikers should avoid low lying flood prone areas. People should stay away from streams, drainage ditches and low lying areas prone to flooding. The rainfall and runoff will 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.
