Landslides and rock falls from overhanging cliffs are likely due to intense rainfall
Loose objects can become missiles in gusty winds
This wet and unstable weather pattern is expected to continue into next week as a tropical wave is projected to move across the island chain from overnight Monday into Tuesday.

A reduction in haze concentration is expected during the next 24 hours. People with respiratory sensitivities should continue to take all precautions to avoid complications.

Moderate to rough seas are anticipated during the next 24 hours with waves peaking to 10.0ft along the eastern coastline. A Small Craft Warning is in effect. Small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise extreme caution. Sea-bathers should stay out of the water.
