HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state is closing all state forest and park areas on Hawaii Island and Maui, in advance of Tropical Storm Darby.

Camping permits have also been canceled.

Meanwhile, Oahu and Kauai forest areas and trails will remain open Friday and Saturday, unless weather conditions warrant them being closed.

Separately, the state doesn't plan to close any state small boat harbors, but is asking boaters to monitor VHF radio for Coast Guard information.
