MAKAWAO, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) -
Flash flooding on Maui late Thursday and early Friday caused extensive property damage. Dramatic video shared with Hawaii News Now shows the flooding in Upcountry Maui that washed away a cottage and a shed on Kaluanui Road.
Gushing floodwaters turned what is normally a waterfall into a huge torrent of water in Makawao. The rush of water inundated property owned by Bob Flint, who lives in the Maliko Gulch area.
"In like five minutes I turned around and the water was up on the lawn and the waves were coming up across," said Flint. "Suddenly waves were coming under the cottage, and they were thrusting under the cottage and I ran to turn off the gas lines, and I heard a giant crack, and I turned and the cottage was gone," he said.
Water and debris destroyed an unoccupied cottage and a shed and also washed out a driveway, says Flint. His family's home was also hit by floodwaters, but he used sand bags to try to prevent further damage.
