* Until 945 AM HST

* At 655 AM HST, radar indicated moderate to heavy showers and

  over west Maui as well.

  Highway junction north of Kihei.

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 945 AM HST if heavy rain
persists.

This advisory replaces the previously issued advisory that was in
effect for portions of the island of Maui in Maui County.

A Flash Flood Watch is also in effect.
