NORTH KOHALA, HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) on Monday closed the Muliwai trail and Waimanu Valley campground in North Kohala, due to heavy rains and flooding.

DLNR's Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) and Hawaii County Civil Defense, this morning were working to determine if there were any stranded hikers in Waimanu Valley.

DLNR reminds hikers not to try to cross flooded streams due to danger of being swept away. Wait on high ground until the stream has subsided.

Last night weather conditions were so severe on the windward side of the Big Island that highway 19 was closed for a 10 mile stretch near Laupahoehoe.

DOFAW will reopen the trail once staff have inspected and made any needed repairs.
