Issued: 328 PM HST FRI AUG 8 2014

ISELLE STILL PRODUCING LOCALLY DAMAGING WIND GUSTS OVER KAUAI

NEW INFORMATION
Update to cancel warnings over Oahu and Maui county.
AREAS AFFECTED
This local statement provides information for portions of the Hawaiian islands and adjacent coastal waters.
WATCHES/WARNINGS
A tropical storm warning continues for Niihau, Kauai.
A tropical storm warning continues for Kauai northwest waters, Kauai windward waters, Kauai leeward waters and Kauai channel.
A flash flood watch is in effect for all of the Hawaiian islands.
A high surf advisory is in effect for east facing shores of Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and the Big Island.
STORM INFORMATION
At 3 pm HST, the center of tropical storm Iselle was located near latitude 19.7°N, longitude 158.8°W, or about 155 miles south of Lihue Hawaii about 120 miles southwest of Honolulu Hawaii. Tropical storm Iselle is moving west at 18 mph. Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph.
SITUATION OVERVIEW
Pockets of gusty winds over 50 mph continue over and around Kauai, where strong wind gusts have led to some damage across southern and western Kauai this afternoon.
Periods of heavy rainfall are possible into tonight. Soils are saturated, and any additional rainfall will lead to flash flooding, especially on the Big Island.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
Precautionary/preparedness actions, as tropical storm conditions diminish, do not go outside to check for damage or to implement temporary repairs until high winds fully subside. Stay away from downed power lines. Even approaching a power line can lead to electrocution and death.
Closely monitor NOAA weather radio or other local news outlets for official information.
NEXT UPDATE
The next local statement will be issued around 5 pm HST, or sooner if conditions warrant.
