Department of Environmental Management officials report that a Maui County contractor broke an existing 20-inch sewer force main around 2 p.m. at a Wahikuli construction site.
The break forced the Lahaina 3 Pump Station to be shut down for repairs which affected all Lahaina residents from Puamana to the Lahaina Civic Center. The repair has been completed as of Tuesday evening.
Residents were asked to conserve water usage but residents may resume regular water usage.
There were reports of overflows happening and as a result crews closed all Lahaina beaches from Mala Wharf to Canoe Beach.
The beaches remain closed overnight as a precaution.
Sources tell KHON2 that state Department of Health Director Loretta Fuddy died in a plane crash off Molokai.
Loretta Fuddy devoted 30 years to the health and human services industry.
There's a grinch at the Hawaii State Veteran's Cemetery. At least, that's what those who have loved ones buried there are saying. They've been told their holiday decorations at gravesites will have to come down.
