National Weather Service warns of widespread flooding ahead

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – Periods of extremely heavy rain could cause widespread flash flooding around the state Sunday and Monday, and possibly through Tuesday.

The National Weather Service in Honolulu has continued statewide flood watch until 6 p.m. Tuesday.

The Weather Service’s warning statement said: “Rain of this magnitude can cause catastrophic flooding and affect areas that would not normally be flooded.”

Periods of extremely heavy rainfall are expected as low Kona develops west of Kauai. This will draw deep tropical moisture over the islands.

A slow-moving swath of heavy rain is predicted to sweep across the island of Hawaii and Maui County on Sunday, spreading to Oahu and Kauai County Sunday night and Monday.

Forecasters expect widespread rainfall totaling 10 to 15 inches. Remote areas can receive 20 to 25 inches of rain.

Low spots in roads can become dangerous and impassable due to severe flooding and runoff. Debris in streams and gullies can also clog bridges and culverts and lead to dangerous flooding.

Numerous landslides are also expected in areas with steep terrain.

Isolated highways, including the Belt Highway in the Ka’u District of the island of Hawaii, may be closed in one or more locations, leading to lengthy detours. Communities can also become isolated.

Residents are urged to be prepared if a sudden flood warning is issued. If you experience heavy rain or rising water, move to higher elevations immediately. Do not cross fast flowing water in a vehicle or on foot.

Controversial Facebook mega data center cuts line for grid connection

A mega data center for Facebook was given priority over other companies to connect to the electricity grid, although the center would put an extra burden on the already congested network. Several officials within the Ministry of Economic Affairs had expressed their doubts about the mega data center, De Telegraaf reported on the basis of released documents.

“The growth of data centers leads to an increase in electricity consumption. As long as production is not fully renewable, this will lead to additional CO2 emissions,” officials from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy wrote in a letter. to former Minister of Economic Affairs Eric Wiebes in 2020.

Electricity demand has increased enormously in recent years and the electricity grid has not been able to cope with the increase, RTL Nieuws reported in November. The transition to renewable energy also requires a redesign of the electrical infrastructure that is still underway.

Facebook took precedence over other companies waiting years to connect to the electricity grid. Facebook’s parent company, Meta, was given priority after they threatened to move the data center to another European location. Officials expressed concern that other companies will now demand priority as well.

Officials also warned that the data center’s economic gains were “limited” and “out of line with existing and planned policies that a hyperscale data center should be located on the borders of the Netherlands”.

The municipality of Zeewold still has to cast a final vote on the data center on December 16. A small majority of the city council seems to be in favor of the center, according to NU.nl.
