HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Flood Advisories posted for Maui and Oahu after heavy rains Saturday have been canceled.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu says heavy rains have eased up after downpours, thunderstorms and even reports of hail.

Earlier in the day, rain was falling at rates of up to three inches per hour over the central part of the island and the Koolau mountain range. Thunderstorms were also reported in Mililani and Waipahu.

Multiple viewers have also reported hail in Mililani and Waikele.

On Maui, just after 3:30 p.m., NWS said radar indicated rainfall at rates of 2 inches per hour over upcountry Maui and southeast slopes of Haleakala.

Officials want to remind the public, when advisories are posted, to stay away from streams, ditches and low-lying areas. When driving, do not cross fast flowing or rising waters in a vehicle.
