HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - The flash flood warning for Kauai has been dropped, but forecasters warn of the potential for moderate to heavy showers through mid-day Monday.

On Sunday, heavy rains and thunderstorms pounded parts of the islands, but tapered off in the late afternoon. Downpours and thunderstorms flared up again into the evening.

Heavy rain was reported on the island’s east and north side.

The unstable weather is being caused by deep tropical moisture being pulled up from what’s left of Erick.

Additional advisories may be posted in the coming days as remnants from Flossie approaches the islands.

Residents in low-lying areas are urged to seek higher ground.
