"The Sky is Falling" Kauai, says NWS

Polihale State Park road was entrenched in mud, Kapaa suffered power outages, a landslide at Lumahai disrupted traffic and the Ke'e Beach lifeguard tower was forced to close. For the clincher, thousands of islanders accidently received an automated message, "This is your Kauai Civil Defense. The sky is falling." Later the correct message came through reporting a flash flood warning. Click here
