Maui County is currently under a Tropical Storm Warning along with Hawaii County and Oahu due to Tropical Storm Flossie.

In preparation for TS Flossie, the county’s Emergency Operations Center was activated at 7 a.m. Sunday.

All county parks and offices will be closed on Monday.

Campers at county beach parks are being evacuated and camping will be prohibited at all beach parks until further notice.

The county has also asked that water be used for health and sanitation purposes only.

Maui Civil Defense sirens will not be sounding for this storm event, as sirens are only used for tsunami and hurricanes.

Automated trash pick-up will operate as usual and the Maui Bus system will operate on their regular schedules tomorrow. Operations will halt if weather conditions cause roads to become unsafe.
