Strong winds have died down but officials warned Saturday that torrential rains still remained a big threat to Hawaii after once-powerful Hurricane Lane was downgraded to a tropical storm. Forecasters said as much as 10 more inches of rain could fall on Oahu and Maui as the storm churned about 110 miles south of Honolulu, moving north at 3 mph.
