    The backwash collides with an incoming, wind-enhanced break at the Ammonia’s break at Kalapaki Bay Tuesday afternoon. A high-surf advisory and a brown-water advisory were issued for Kaua‘i due to the wind-enhanced surf on the east-facing shores and the waters made brown from runoffs.

LIHU‘E — Heavy rains triggered a flash-flood warning for Kaua‘i on Tuesday night and the closure of Kuhio Highway in the vicinity of the Hanalei Bridge at about 5 p.m.
