Flash flood watch issued for the Big Island

By Associated Press

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii (AP) The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch for the Big Island.

The watch will remain in effect until 6 a.m. Saturday.

Forecasters say a front is moving through the island chain and bringing heavy showers with it. It is expected to stall near the Big Island by late Saturday. Forecasters say the Kailua-Kona area will be particularly susceptible to flooding.

Forecasters say flash floods can be very dangerous, and they say it does not have to be raining hard for one to occur. They are encouraging residents to monitor the latest forecasts and be prepared to take immediate action if the flash flood watch is upgraded to a warning.
