WAIMEA, Kauai (KHNL) -- A field of weeds west of Waimea Canyon School on Kauai is suspected to be the source of a noxious odor that permeated the area early Friday morning.
Several students and a teacher who experienced dizziness and headaches were taken to Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital to be checked as a precautionary measure, while others were sent home.
Firefighters responded to a 9:36 a.m. call regarding a noxious odor.
At about 11:40 a.m., authorities discovered several piles of weeds in a field west of the school they say might be the source of the noxious odor reported earlier.
Officials held a meeting at the school at around noon and asked Syngenta representatives to dispose the piles of weeds.
