Kalihi Valley home damaged by 2 tumbling boulders

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) Two boulders dislodged during heavy rain tumbled about 20 feet down a Kalihi Valley hillside, damaging a home and narrowly missing four people sleeping inside.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser says emergency personnel got a call from the home's residents on Monday morning after the boulders hit the house. The boulders measuring 3 by 5 feet and 3 by 3 feet hit the back of the house and damaged a small portion of a bedroom wall.

Emergency officials say it's possible the boulders came from a single large boulder and broke into pieces.

Peter Hirai, deputy director of the city Department of Emergency Management, says there was a rockslide about 11 miles to the east. No one was injured and there was no property damage.
