Heavy rain causes flooding in Hawaii

12:39 pm on 16 September 2005

Heavy rain in Hawaii has caused flooding on parts of the Big Island.

Forecasters have issued a flash-flood warning and flash-flood watches for the island group.

The Hawaii Channel reports soccer fields looked more like large ponds in some neighbourhoods.

A tropical storm centred south east of Hawaii is predicted to head towards the island group.
