Hawaii’s Honolulu and Kauai counties were placed under a flash flood watch on Monday, March 8, as heavy rainfall inundated the region overnight, footage taken on March 9 shows.

The Honolulu Department of Emergency Management extended the flash flood warning for Oahu into Tuesday afternoon as public road closures and landslides were expected.
