Hydrant causes flood in section of town on Kauai

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) - Kauai officials say a fire hydrant break caused a small flood in Koloa and disrupted water service for nearly an hour.

The Garden Island reports the incident occurred Tuesday evening at an intersection of Weliweli Road.

Officials say someone trying to park a rental car struck the hydrant, causing water to gush onto the road. One lane of traffic was closed.

An inspector turned off the hydrant valve after arriving. The hydrant itself was repaired Wednesday.
