Hana Highway closed due to slide

Both lanes are closed, due to a landslide, Hana side of Honomanu Bay.

Please do not plan for a trip to Hana tomorrow without checking road conditions.

One vehicle was reported to be caught in the slide.

Thanks for the heads up, Miss Joan! And Caddyman, thanks for the link. According to that article, no vehicles were found to have been pushed off the road, thank the good Lord! Prayers for safety for the workers as they clear this mess.

This is a good example of why it can be risky to book one's departure back home from Hana............while this one made the news, there are often smaller ones and other delays on the RTH, and the airlines don't have any empathy these days.
