LIHUE — The flash flood warning for the County of Kauai expired at 12:02 p.m.
According to the National Weather Service, the weather radar and rain gages show that the heavy rains have ended. The water levels in streams and rivers remain elevated above normal, but are slowly subsiding. Minor road ponding conditions will remain for several hours as runoff slowly diminishes.
The state Department of Health has issued a brown water advisory for the island of Kauai. The public is advised to stay out of floodwaters and storm water runoff due to possible overflowing cesspools, sewer manholes, pesticides, animal fecal matter, dead animals, pathogens, chemicals, and associated flood debris. If coastal waters are turbid and brown, stay out.
Green waste disposal operations at all refuse transfer stations except the Lihue transfer station and the Kekaha Landfill remain closed.
Weather advisories may change as conditions develop.
