...TORRENTIAL RAINFALL SOAKS THE BIG ISLAND...

Several days of enhanced rainfall have saturated the slopes of the
Big Island from the Kohala Mountains to Hilo, and southward to
Pahala. Rainfall totals were greatest on the upper slopes of the
South Hilo District where several rain gages recorded two to more
than three FEET of rainfall in a 72-hour period. This area of the
Big Island is sparsely populated which helped limit serious
flooding impacts in those areas. The lower slopes received heavier
rainfall during the morning of November 30 which produced more
significant impacts, mostly related to flooded roads in the South
Hilo and Puna Districts.

The following are preliminary 72-hour rainfall totals from
selected gages covering the period from 11 AM HST November 27 to
11 AM HST November 30. These data have not been quality controlled
and are for information purposes only.
