While Hawaii was spared the worst of the since-downgraded Tropical Depression Lane, the storm managed to dump more than four feet of rain - a new state record - on the Big Island over the weekend, washing out roads and flooding homes and buildings.
The storm, which was previously a Category 5 hurricane, lost much of its power as it headed toward Hawaii last week. Residents of some neighbourhoods have been evacuated following the heavy rains, while in one case, a brush fire caused the evacuation of visitors in Maui’s resort area of Laihana. Landslides have also been reported in some areas, a hazard which authorities continue to monitor.
No casualties have been reported as a result of the storm.
