Officials say Tropical Storm Olivia has been downgraded to a tropical depression as it moves away from Hawaii. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center said in a statement Thursday that the depression would produce additional rainfall of 3 to 5 inches and isolated amounts of 6-8 inches on higher terrain. The center says that rain could cause life-threatening flash floods because the ground is already saturated with water. The tropical depression was moving west-southwest at about 18 mph.
