Business Report: Wild Hawaiian Weather

HONOLULU (HAWAIINEWSNOW) - The USDA Hawaii field office reports our wild weather of recent days added two and a half feet of water to the Big Island's Waimea irrigation system.

But the Molokai system is the same as before and a mandatory 20 percent use reduction order remains in effect.

The state agriculture department says it's still getting reports from farmers across the state but the storms definitely did crop damage, including but not limited to the flooding of the famous Hanalei taro valley.

East Hawaii banana and papaya orchards enjoyed drenching rains without damage, however, and Maui onions seem to have survived the weather well.
