(KHNL) -- Sunday's storm came fast and furious, causing more problems for an already saturated state.

In Maunawili, rising waters trapped three women on top of their car, which got stuck on the road leading to Luana Hills Golf Course.

As water nearly covered their car, firefighters were able to reach the women and help them make it to safety.  Soon after, their car was completely submerged by the storm runoff.

None of the women were injured.
