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.
