Tropical Depression Could Mean Heavy Rains And High Wind For Hawaii

HONOLULU (AP) -- A flash flood watch has been issued for the Big Island of Hawaii because of an approaching tropical depression.

The weather system is expected to move south of the island Friday, churning up blustery winds, heavy rains and eight-foot waves.

Small craft advisories are in effect for waters around the Big Island and Maui.

The depression formed last weekend about halfway between Mexico and the Hawaiian Islands. It became a tropical storm and then a hurricane, before weakening back down to a depression.
