Maui in three weeks

I haven't heard much news on whether Maui has been affected at all by smoke. Is Maui ok to visit. Also does anyone know the status of the Kauai floods?

Any tips are appreciated

It's really not smoke but what is called vog. Volcanic gases. It's been happening in Hawaii and yes all islands for over 30 years. When the tradewinds die down it can be voggy. No way to tell more than a day or two out whether it will be voggy or not. We're at the mercy of the weather. All islands are fine to visit. Even the vast majority of the island of Hawaii where the volcano is located.

Status of the Kauai floods? The road west of Hanalei is stilled closed and will be for quite awhile otherwise,the island is back to normal.

Also still closed on Kauaʻi is Hanaleiʻs Black Pot beach and the pier.

Vog hasn't been happening for 30 years on Maui or the other neighbor islands. That's not correct or true.

Hi!

Welcome! I just want to bring to your attention that the Island of Maui has its own Forum (as do the other Islands). Much more specific information there ... lots of posts to read, as well as the Top Questions.

In the future, you'll want to post there. Go ahead and pull up the Island of Maui Forum and take a look. Right now, you're on the generic Forum for the entire State of Hawaii.
