Maui also suffered through some significant rainfall, Oahu perhaps not as much.
Thanks for the information. Guess we'll stick with Big Island and see where it's at when we land this upcoming weekend.

Maui will be fine as well. No major flooding that I’ve heard of. Power was still out in parts of Lahaina yesterday from the generator that blew up and started the brush fire. Business as usual otherwise.

As Arthurrs said it was mainly a East Hawaii event but areas to the north including Hawi did get hit with pretty massive rain. Not sure where you had planned on staying but Kona north to Kawaihae and south to nearly Ocean View is fine. Waimea is OK as well with no major flooding that I had heard of but did not get up there during the storms.

Mainly hiking around the island and visiting the observatory. Was concerned about the road conditions in general.

The weather this week on the west side (Fairmont) is stunning! Some of the best we’ve had but very warm and humid. Still some rain around upcountry and probably east side too. Saddle Road (fastest route) to Hilo is fine (per staff) but the road that goes over the north side had some issues with landslides.

Indeed, it has been absolutely amazing here at Fairmont Orchid, we just wanted to stay here and not venture out as much. Very quiet and peaceful here as well! Don't want to leave for home tomorrow!!
