“Haiku evacuations remain in effect; residents advised to stay away from vicinity of Kaupakalua Dam

The Maui Fire Department reports responding to more than a dozen calls for help from residents who have been trapped by rising waters.

Officials advise people to stay away from low-lying areas, near streams and from the vicinity of and downstream of Kaupakalua Dam in Haiku. Even if it appears that there is less rainfall and conditions are improving, people should not return to the area until there is an “all clear” announcement.

Hana Highway is closed from Peahi Road to Keanae. Roadways that had been closed earlier have reopened, according to the Maui Police Department.

For emergency information, contact the Maui Emergency Management Agency at 270-7285.

As a reminder, all County of Maui parks on Maui island have been closed because of heavy rain and flooding. The parks will be closed until further notice. An assessment of park conditions will be made tomorrow, according to the Department of Parks and Recreation.” – Brian Perry, Communications Director
