Mahalo to everyone who took the time to send us photos so that we could see first hand the impacts of Flossie as it passed over Maui County on Monday as a Tropical Depression. Residents from across the county reported everything from lighting strikes to downed power lines, fallen trees, and road closures.  Here’s a look some of the images sent to us during and after the height of the storm.

  • dodged a bad bullet

    can you imagine if this had been a full blown hurricane?……..it would’ve been a direct hit on the whole state!
    let’s hope this isn’t the pattern for future storms this season

    • stand alone” guns still loaded

      To soon spoken, there’s another one brewing. Hope, it don’t reach. But it probably will. In the Pacific there’s all the right recipe for categories1,2,3,4, even 5. Hurricanes. Praying, it won’t get into the categories stages.

        Watching Gil closely, you are right, all the conditions are there to produce bad weather….lets hope it slides by us!
