Don't even think about coming east today. We're getting rain today at rate of 2-3 inches per hour and fierce lightning and thunder for over 24 hours. Flash flooding is a high probability.
Civil Defense is warning people to stay inside.
I had an appointment but I just canceled it. It makes no sense to be on the road today.
I heard there was also heavy rain affecting south of Kailua Kona yesterday. Maybe wahine can update that.
Happy New Year from Hilo!
