Hurricane Lane dumped 52 inches of rain on Hawaii and there might be more on the way

Big Island

( CNN) Hurricane Lane may have passed by the island chain over the weekend, but Hawaii is still feeling the storm’s aftereffects as occupants recover from days of heavy rain and remain on the lookout for even more showers.

That’s behind merely the 60.58 inches dumped on Nederland, Texas by Hurricane Harvey last year.

Hawaii’s Big Island — the easternmost island in the chain — was hammered hardest by rainwater. Some inhabitants there had to be evacuated, with ocean recoveries occurring in Hilo and Keaau, the NWS said. A number of roads were closed by inundating and landslides.
