A daily record of 7.92 inches (20.117 centimetres) fell Monday on Honolulu, the state’s largest city, according to the National Weather Service. Other areas on the island of Oahu received close to 10 inches of rain, said David Roth, a senior branch forecaster with the US Weather Prediction Center. Severe thunderstorms were also raking Oahu with winds of up to 50 miles per hour.
