Severe Weather Ahead: Lightning, Flash Flood Watch, & Power Outages

Dig in for a wet and windy Aloha Friday, Sunrise Ohana! We have a flash flood watch, wind advisory and small craft advisory in effect for starters.

SEVERE WEATHER

We're watching the effects of the lightning, rain, and high winds around the State. Our scanner is buzzing with activity this morning. Everything from downed trees to power outages to a car rollover. We have team coverage this morning with Ramsay roving Oahu, Dan Cooke tracking the radar, and Malika out live.

PROBLEMS ON THE ROADS?

Whenever we have weather like this, problems on the roads are inevitable. Already this morning, we've had reports of trees down blocking Kapolei Parkway. Taizo is watching for traffic trouble.
