LIHU‘E — The national weather service in Honolulu has issued a flash flood warning for the island of Kaua‘i until 8:45 p.m.

A gage on the Hanalei river showed a rapid rise in water level from heavy rain over the mountains. The area of heavy rain was nearly stationary. Other locations in the warning include but are not limited to:

Wailua, Haena, Wainiha, NaPali State Park, Moloaa, Kalalau Valley, Princeville, Kokee State Park, Kilauea, Hanalei and Anahola.
