Hawaii County Civil Defense 4 p.m. flood advisory and high surf message.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has extended the flood advisory for Hawaii Island until 7:30 p.m. Tuesday (Sept 1).

At 5:30 p.m. weather radar showed heavy rain nine miles south of Volcano, the area of rain was nearly stationary.

Other locations in the advisory include, but are not limited to, Pahala, Volcano and Mountain View.

Campers and hikers should avoid low lying flood prone areas. People should stay away from streams, drainage ditches and low lying areas prone to flooding. The rainfall and runoff will cause hazardous driving conditions due to ponding, reduced visibility and poor braking action. Excessive runoff may cause rockslides and mudslides in steep terrain.

Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle or on foot. Turn around, don’t drown.

This advisory may be extended beyond 7:30 p.m. should heavy rains persist.
