This is a Civil Defense message.  This is a flood advisory information update for Friday October 13 at 8:45 AM.

The National Weather Service has issued a flood advisory for Hawaii Island, including the areas of Waikoloa, Puako, Kawaihae, Kohala, Waimea, and Waipi’o Valley.

Police report all roads are open at this time, but advise that driving conditions are poor because of occasionally heavy downpours.

Remember, if lightning does threaten your area, the safest place to be is indoors.

Should power outages occur, be on the alert for non-operable traffic signals. Please treat flashing traffic lights as a four-way stop.

Again, the National Weather Service reports unstable weather conditions for all of Hawaii Island to continue through today and into tonight.

This website will be updated and you will be informed of any conditions that may affect your safety.

Thank you for listening, have a safe day, this is you Hawaii County Civil Defense.
