Tropical Storm Olivia May Drop 15 Inches Of Rain On Hawaii: Forecast

"HONOLULU — Hawaii officials urged residents and visitors to be prepared as a strong tropical storm approached the island state.

Olivia was a few hundred miles east of Hilo late Monday with maximum sustained winds of 70 mph. It was downgraded from a hurricane earlier in the day after wind shear weakened the storm.

Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell cautioned against complacency, noting tropical storms have led to flooding in Honolulu in recent years."
