The hurricane was downgraded to a tropical storm in the early hours of Saturday, but authorities said they still expected further flooding and damaging winds on parts of the island.

County Managing Director Wil Okabe estimates about 200 people have reported some kind of damage.

"We don't really have any numbers or statistics back yet", she said.

Hawaiian Telcom's Field Operations team has begun conducting damage assessments where it is safe to do so. "People are exhausted of being wet".

County workers are being dispatched Monday to check-out damage, mostly on the east side of the Big Island.

There were no deaths from the storm, which had the potential to cause much more destruction. "What we're concerned about is the mold - when it goes into the drywall, the rug, stuff like that", Okabe said.

A once-powerful hurricane twisted and drifted away from Hawaii, leaving behind heavily saturated ground on the Big Island and many residents on other islands relieved it didn't wreak more havoc. But then it slowed down, moving as slow as 3 km/h at times.

Waiakea Uka, located just south of Hilo on the Big Island, has picked up 1,177mm since Wednesday, while Piihonua picked up 1,135mm of rainfall through Saturday morning. Six classrooms are displaced while crews clean up. "Four feet of water in three days overwhelmed even the best infrastructure and the best storm drains and plans".

"Lingering moisture associated with Tropical Storm Lane will produce excessive rainfall over the main Hawaiian Islands through Sunday, which could lead to additional flash flooding and landslides", the Hurricane Center warned.
