Rain floods Oahu homes, affects other islands

By Associated Press

HAUULA, Hawaii (AP) Remnants of a broken-up tropical storm brought rainy weather to Hawaii, flooding windward Oahu homes and affecting areas of the Big Island and Kauai.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports that water rose about 13 inches inside Holly Smith's Hauula home, causing about $100,000 in damages.

Smith says the water bubbled up through termite holes, under the foundation and in the walls.

Fire officials say they received 13 flood calls in 36 hours.

Weather officials say windward Oahu got most of the rains left over from a dissipated storm, about one foot over a 24-hour period. Over the same period, parts of Maui and the Big Island got three inches.

Officials say lightning damaged equipment at an observatory on the Big Island and prompted the closure of a Kauai landfill.
