KULA, Maui (KHNL) -- The Hawaii National Guard has begun cleaning up the muddy mess flash floods left behind last month on Maui.
About 50 National Guard soldiers are in Kula.
The aftermath is so extensive, the Department of Defense says the mission will take about a month to finish.
"I've never seen anything like it in my life, except for TV and in movies," said 1st Lt. Brian Ouimet of the Hawaii National Guard.
"If the national guard didn't come up here, I don't know what I would've done," said flash flood victim Kenneth Furukawa.
