Despite dry November, 2018 still a wet year in East Hawaii

HOLLYN JOHNSON/Tribune-Herald Flood waters make the intersection of Kamehameha Avenue and Pauahi Street impassable Aug. 23 in Hilo.

Although most Big Island rain gauges posted near-to-below average monthly totals for November, the wetter-than-normal year continues into its final three weeks, according to data released Thursday by the National Weather Service in Honolulu.
