State under flash flood watch through Thursday

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for all Hawaiian Islands from Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon.

A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding.

The NWS suggests several precautionary/preparedness actions"

Stay away from streams, drainage ditches and low lying areas prone to flooding.

Rainfall and runoff will also cause hazardous driving conditions due to ponding and 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.
