    A landslide has forced the temporary closure of the Hāna Highway (360) at Mile Marker 21. Maui police closed the road in the area between Nāhiku Road and Wailua Road in Hāna, “due to the mountain coming down across the roadway.”

    Authorities say the landslide is blocking both lanes. The closure went into effect at around 9 a.m. on Sunday, April 8, 2018.
