Heavy rains pass over islands

LIHUE — A vigorous cold front generated heavy showers and thunderstorms while passing over the Hawaiian Islands this weekend.

The front dropped 2 to 5 inches of rainfall across much of Kauai and Oahu Friday night and Saturday, and produced strong thunderstorms before moving on to Maui and Hawaii counties, according to the National Weather Service.

All green waste sites were closed Saturday on Kauai due to the weather, according to a county news release.

The Kalalau Trail was also closed due to flooding of Hanakapiai Stream.

Weliweli Road in Koloa between Hapa Road and Ala Kinoiki was closed Saturday due to heavy ponding but reopened.

For updates on road closures, call 241-1725.

For weather updates, tune in to the NOAA weather radio or local media.

Information about the weather is also available online at www.weather.gov/hawaii.

Updates about the road and green waste closures will be posted on the county Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/CountyofKauai/.
