“Tropical Storm Calvin, now downgraded from a hurricane, continued to churn across the Pacific Ocean toward Hawaii on Monday.
“The storm was forecast to hit or graze the Big Island of Hawaii by midweek, bringing the risk of strong winds, high surf and heavy rainfall, which could lead to flash flooding and mudslides, the Central Pacific Hurricane Center said.
“A tropical storm watch has been issued for Hawaii County, which is the Big Island. A tropical storm watch means that tropical storm conditions are possible within the watch area within the next 36 to 48 hours.
