Palm trees are shown in a flooded field during a torrential rainstorm. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in Hawaii and Maui.

Aloha! Our local teams in Hawaii and Maui respond to storm and flood damage emergencies every year in the Hilo area. Hilo gets 188 days of rain each year and averages 156.79 inches annually. With this much rain, flooding does happen sometimes. The University of Hawaii, Hilo, website offers this information about flood watches and flood warnings as follows:

A flash flood watch means a flash flood is possible in the area because conditions are more favorable than usual for its occurrence. A watch is a recommendation for planning, preparation, and increased awareness (be alert for changing weather, listen for further information, and think about what to do if the danger materializes.)

A flash flood warning means a flash flood is imminent or occurring; take immediate action to protect life and property.

An urban and small stream advisory means being alert regarding small streams, flooding, urban storm drains, underpasses, and low-lying areas.
