Winds whip through rural Maui, heavy rain drenches hazardous road


The outer rain bands of Tropical Storm Olivia have now reached parts of Maui.

Along Highway 340 near Kahakuloa in the northwest portion of the island, rain has soaked a hazardous stretch of road.

Heavy rain can be seen offshore and moving over land in rains as winds pick up through mountainous terrain.

The forecast calls for sustained tropical-storm-force winds to arrive in a matter of hours.

Right now, maximum sustained winds measure up to 50 mph near Olivia’s center, 100 miles from Hilo.
