Hurricane Lane weakens to tropical storm, but flood threat continues in Hawaii

Honolulu (CNN)Lane was downgraded to a tropical storm Friday, but it’s still drenching Hawaii with heavy rains and dangerous flash flooding.

The center of the storm — about 150 miles south of Honolulu on Friday — is not expected to come ashore though the eye wall could pass dangerously close to the central islands, including Oahu and Maui, in the coming days.
But it’s the Big Island of Hawaii — the easternmost island in the chain — that has been hammered hardest by rain. More than 35 inches fell in one spot over the past few days, causing serious flooding, landslides and road closures.
