Parts of Maui see above-average rainfall totals in March

WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - The National Weather Service says many parts of Maui County saw above-average rainfall last month.

Wailuku newspaper The Maui News reported Monday it was the second consecutive month of similar rainfall patterns.

Some areas saw rainfall totals unseen in a decade. The gauge at Waikapu Country Club collected nearly 6 inches, which is the most since 2004. Hana Airport got nearly 12 inches and Kahakuloa got more than 12 inches. Both totals were the highest since 2005.

The highest March total was recorded in the National Park Service's Puu Alii gauge on Molokai, which collected more than 48 inches.
