On Molokai, most Maui County workers operating out of the Mitchell Pauole Center were sent home early.

Heavy rains caused water to leak through the roof of the center, which houses most of the island’s county offices.

The departments of public works, finance, planning, and water were closed and will remain closed until the county can assess the damage.

Only the Division of Motor Vehicles and Licensing as well as Council Services offices remain open at this time.

On Oahu, the city closed all fields at Patsy T. Mink Central Oahu Regional Park and Hans L’Orange Neighborhood Park.

Officials say the grounds were already saturated from this weekend’s rain.

A flash flood watch for all islands remains in effect through Wednesday afternoon.

Conditions may develop that lead to torrential rain. Where torrential rains occur, flash flooding of poor drainage areas, streams, and low lying areas will be possible.
