HANALEI, Hawaii (AP) - One lane of Kuhio Highway on Kauai’s north shore has reopened after heavy rains forced the highway to close overnight.

The National Weather Service on Friday issued a flash flood watch for Kauai and a flood advisory for Oahu as rains moved across the northwest edge of the state.

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources says the Kalalau Trail on Kauai’s north shore is closed until further notice.

Kauai’s Department of Water is asking Hanapepe and Eleele residents to conserve water because the power has been knocked out at a well and tank site in the area. High river levels and severe weather are preventing personnel from reaching the site to restore power.

Kauai County says it expects unstable weather to continue through the weekend.
