Rain snarled rush hour traffic Wednesday morning on Oahu as the remnants of Tropical Depression Darby dumped heavy rains to the island.

The National Weather Service dropped a flash-flood advisory for Oahu Wednesday afternoon. The NWS also canceled a flash-flood warning for Kauai at 1:45 p.m. Forecasters instead issued a flash-flood watch for Kauai until 4 a.m. Thursday.

Back on Oahu, power was out and officials closed Kapolei High School in the morning.

  • 9 p.m. (Tuesday) Waimalu
  • 11 p.m. (Tuesday) Campbell Industrial Park
  • 4 a.m. Kapolei
  • 4:20 a.m. Ala Moana (Piikoi St./Wilder Ave.)
  • 5:10 a.m. upper Manoa
  • 7:35 a.m. Kapolei
  • 9:15 a.m. Haleiwa

The rain has also caused several road closures. Honolulu police closed Likelike Highway in the Kaneohe-bound lanes due to accidents and weather. Traffic is being diverted at Nalanieha Street in Kalihi.

On Windward Oahu, a landslide near Makapuu Lookout closed Kalaniaole Highway in both directions for several hours, but police say the road reopened at 8 a.m.

Kamehameha Highway was closed in both directions in Waiahole Valley because of the rain. Police have opened one lane to contra flow traffic.

Meanwhile, the weather service has canceled flash flood watches for Maui and the Big Island, but the rest of the state remains under a flash flood watch until 4 p.m.

The remnants of Darby hit the Big Island hard Monday. Flooding forced the closure of some roads and classes were canceled at five public schools.
