This is a Civil Defense message. This is a flash flood watch information update for Wednesday, August 24 at 10:30 AM.
A flash flood watch was again issued by the National Weather Service and will remain in effect for the entire state through late this afternoon. Deep tropical moisture conditions will continue to produce heavy downpours and a chance of thunderstorms over all islands. With streams remaining elevated, and the ground already saturated from recent heavy rains in many areas, there will be an elevated risk for flash flooding. A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. Flash flooding is very dangerous. Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle or on foot. Turn around, don’t drown.
