No major damage was reported from flooding in South Maui earlier this week.  Heavy rains resulted in flooding in parts of Kīhei on Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Maui Mayor Michael Victorino released a statement on Thursday saying, “Under normal circumstances I would personally inspect areas affected by flooding and reach out to Kīhei residents.”

“I want to thank Department of Public Works personnel for acting quickly to clear drainage ways and to do substantial work to clean up roads Monday and this morning. The staff will also be conducting assessments to ascertain the extent of any damages incurred during the recent rains and to make any repairs that can be addressed immediately.

“I’m grateful that flood waters have receded, and our roadways are clear,” he said.

Residents report that at around 10:30 p.m. on Monday night a huge downpour flooded the street at Kīhei Bay Vista.  The water flooded into the rear parking lot and floated a dumpster to the front of the property, out to the road, and almost into the ocean, residents said.

Maui Disposal was recovering the dumpster from the edge of the beach on Tuesday.
