* At 211 PM HST, radar showed that heavy rain has developed over
  central and north Kauai. A rain gage in Hanalei also reported a
  rain rate of about 2 inches per hour. This rain will produce

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Stay away from streams, drainage ditches and low lying areas prone to
flooding.

Rainfall and runoff will also cause hazardous driving conditions due
to ponding, reduced visibility and poor braking action.

Do not cross fast flowing or rising water in your vehicle, or on
foot. Turn around, don`t drown.

This advisory may need to be extended beyond 515 PM HST if heavy rain
persists.
