While Olivia has weakened significantly over the last 24 hours, forecasters continue to warn that the storm could trigger flooding rains, damaging winds and high surf. A high surf warning remains up for east-facing shores of the Big Island, Maui County and Oahu.
On Wednesday, President Trump approved a presidential disaster declaration for any damages associated with Tropical Storm Olivia. Gov. David Ige said he spoke to Vice President Mike Pence, who said federal resources would be available to Hawaii if needed.
An emergency proclamation has also been issued for Maui.
Olivia was the ninth hurricane to form in the Eastern Pacific region this season, and comes on the heels of Hurricane Lane, which dropped record-breaking rain on the Big Island, whipped up wildfires on Maui and triggered widespread flooding on Kauai.
