HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Kauai and Big Island commercial ports have reopened as the threat of Tropical Storm Olivia to those islands has passed.

But Oahu and Maui County ports remain closed as Olivia's heavy rains and high winds near.

All ocean-going vessels and barges 200 gross tons and above were told to leave the ports ahead of the storm. 

Vessels under 200 gross tons were told to get instructions from the state. 

"We are very cognizant of the importance of reopening the ports and resuming the flow of commerce, following the storm's passing," said Petty Officer 3rd Class Amanda Levasseur, Coast Guard 14th District public affairs, in a news release.
