HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

New NASA satellite imagery shows the extent of the soaking Tropical Storm Darby brought to the islands.

The storm flooded roads and homes in Hawaii, especially on Oahu, when it hit over the weekend.

NASA used satellite data to create imagery showing rainfall accumulation totals from Darby. 

One bit of good news the analysis found: Darby's heaviest rains actually happened over the open ocean.

NASA found that the greatest rainfall happened north of Oahu, where an estimated 19 inches of rain fell.
