HONOLULU (AP) -

Heavy rain has been reported on Maui and the northern part of the Big Island as Tropical Storm Olivia passes through Hawaii.
  
Storm warnings were in place Wednesday for the islands of Maui and Oahu but have been canceled for the Big Island and Kauai.
  
National Weather Service meteorologist Melissa Dye in Honolulu says small islands around Maui also are being impacted. A flash flood warning has been issued for Molokai, and a wind gust of 51 mph was reported overnight at the airport on Lanai.
  
She says sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph have been reported at many locations in Maui County.
  
Winds should stick around for most of Wednesday, and Dye says it will rain on Maui for several days.
  
The storm is also expected to later impact the most populated island, Oahu.
  
Dye says some showers were moving across the island Wednesday morning.
