Maui flood waters can be fun - new oceanfront properties on Maui
While the rest of the country is suffering from the usual miserable winter weather, here on Maui we are also having our share of rain. A huge storm front moved over the islands this morning and dumped a lot of water, causing road closures and flooding. The scene in south Maui resulted in the usual road closure at Kaonoulu Rd and S. Kihei Road. You can see why when you watch this short video. Video and picture courtesy of Tara Crawford.
The Villas at Kenolio is a low density townhouse condo development off Kaonoulu Road, adjacent to a wetland, making for nice open space by the complex. Most of the year it's dry here and they even have to water the vacant land to keep the dust down at times. Not so this morning. The Villas at Kenolio suddenly became waterfront property when flood waters and ocean mingled, creating an easy passage to nearby Maalaea Harbor. Here you can see a happy homeowner Andrew Crawford paddling his stand up paddle board over the wetlands, on his way to work at Bevinco. Good thing they have an upper unit!
