Meantime, the Pools of ‘Oheʻo remain closed until mitigation to prevent further rockslides can be completed.

The ‘Oheʻo closure went into effect at the beginning of the year following a rock slide reported on Jan. 3, 2017 caused by over-saturated soil and unusually heavy rainfall in East Maui.

One park visitor sustained minor injuries in the incident.
