HONOLULU (Reuters) - All coastal weather warnings and watch advisories for the Hawaiian Islands were lifted on Saturday as Tropical Storm Lane weakened further and drifted to the west, away from land, the National Weather Service (NWS) said.
Lane's maximum sustained winds diminished to 50 miles per hour (85 km per hour), but the NWS said lingering moisture from the storm would produce heavy rainfall through the weekend that could trigger additional flooding and mudslides.
