High Winds Down Trees,
Power Lines in Lahaina

By Wendy Osher

High winds are being blamed for fallen trees and downed power lines in West Maui on Monday.

Emergency crews from the Maui Fire Department’s Engine-3 worked to secure an area on Ala Moana Street in Lahaina at around 7:35 a.m., where two 30-foot trees fell blocking the west-bound lane of travel.

Fire officials determined that the coconut and kiawe tree did not hit the power lines, which appeared to come down in a separate incident.

Crews from Maui Electric Company also responded to the incident and worked to repair the downed lines.

No other wind related incidents were reported.
