Advisory for drivers: a fallen tree has shut down the right lane of the Likelike Highway Kaneohe Bound in Kalihi. The closure is a half mile before the tunnel. Taizo will have traffic updates every 10 minutes on Sunrise.
Gusty trade winds have also triggered a red flag warning for potential fires in Leeward areas. Gusts up to 35 miles per hour and low humidity could lead to critical fire weather conditions. Dan is tracking the severe weather threat.
The windy weather is making for rough seas. There's a high surf advisory through 6 this morning and a small craft advisory through tomorrow.
