Weather forces closures at Diamond Head, Na Pali Coast

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - In response to safety concerns following severe weather, the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources is closing parks around the state.

Oahu's Diamond Head State Monument and the summit trail at the park are both closed indefinitely due to concerns that the crater's summit could be a potential location for lightning strikes.

Meanwhile, the Napali Coast State Wilderness park is also closed following rain-related damage to the Kalalau trail, while Maui's Polipoli Spring State Park and Waianapanapa State Park were also closed due to severe weather.

Maui's 'Iao Valley State Park and Polihale State Park on Kauai are both open.
