Debris in streams and canyons can cause bridges and divers to end up, resulting in dangerous floods Many landslides are expected, especially along the Hana highway on Maui and the Mamalahoa highway on the big island. "

Much of this will focus on the coastal areas of the islands of Maui County and the Big Island, but floods are still a major threat to all areas. "

    Van Olivia is also expected to generate high surf and storm surges, which "slowly build up on Tuesday and reach a harmful level on some east coast beaches on Tuesday and Wednesday," predictors say. "Surf heights along the east-facing coasts are expected to reach 20 feet on Maui and the Big Island, and 10 to 15 feet on all other islands, which is expected to result in significant beach erosion and excessive washing on vulnerable coastal galleries, especially during high water.
