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.
