The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a flood advisory for the island of Oahu until 5:15 p.m. today.

Just after 2:15 p.m., radar indicated heavy rainfall at a rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour over parts of the island.

Locations affected by this advisory include, but are not limited to: Honolulu, Mililani, Wheeler, Wahiawa, Waikele, Pearl City, Kunia, Waipahu, Schofield Barracks, Aiea, Halawa, Waiahole, Waikane, Salt Lake, Iroquois Point, Moanalua, Makakilo, Kahaluu and Kapolei.

The NWS warns residents in affected areas to stay away from streams, drainage ditches and low lying areas prone to flooding.

Rainfall and runoff can also cause hazardous driving conditions due to ponding, reduced visibility and poor braking action.

Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle, or on foot. Turn around, don’t drown.
