Flash flood watch expires for state

  • JAMM AQUINO / JAQUINO@STARADVERTISER.COM

    Evacuees from McKinley High School are seen in the reflection of a motor scooter mirror as The Bus vehicles ferried them back to their points of origin on Saturday in Honolulu. Hurricane Lane, once a Category 5 storm, was downgraded to a tropical storm early Saturday but experts warned that flash flood and tropical storm conditions were still expected despite a relatively uneventful passing of the storm south of Oahu.

A flash flood watch for the islands of Oahu, Maui, Lanai, Molokai, Kahoolawe and the Big Island expired this afternoon.

But the National Weather Service warned “moisture left behind in Lane’s wake will continue to bring showers to the islands through Tuesday.” Windward areas are expected to receive the bulk of the rain. Drier weather is expected by midweek.

As of 11 p.m. today, Tropical Depression Lane was moving west and away from the main Hawaiian islands. With winds at 35 mph, Lane was 385 miles southwest of Lihue.
