Rain, landslides, flooding: Hurricane Lane's impact on Hawaii, in photos

Posted September 02, 2018

Flash Flood warnings were issued on the Hawaiian island of Kauai on Tuesday morning. Although, this area of showers and storms has a better chance of developing over the next 5 days as it moves west/northwest across the Pacific.

A tropical wave about to move off the coast of Africa has piqued the interest of the National Hurricane Center, which is giving it a 20 percent chance of development over the next five days.

But Tropical Storm Mirian is spinning in the Pacific Ocean some 2,000 miles east of Hawaii and is expected to become a hurricane as it approaches the islands. With that said, the odds of that wave becoming a depression over the next 5 days sit at 60%.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Miriam churned over the eastern Pacific with maximum winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph).

But rain was still pounding the island chain, touching off flooding on Oahu and Kaua'i.
