Rainwater Cascades Onto Highway in Maui Amid Flash Flood Warnings

Heavy rainfall on the Hawaiian island of Maui turned rock ledges along a highway into waterfalls on Monday, December 6, amid flash flood warnings issued by the National Weather Service (NWS).

This footage of the Honoapiilani Highway was posted to Facebook by the Maui Police Department and shows water cascading over rock cliffs while cars and trucks pass by. “Please stay home and off the roads if there is no need for you to travel. And if you are traveling, please be safe and drive with caution and care for one another!! Aloha and stay dry,” the Maui Police Department said in the post.

The NWS said on Sunday that significant flooding would be a statewide threat for the next few days. Credit: Maui Police Department via Storyful
