Big Isle woman swept away during flash flood identified

A 47-year-old woman who died after being swept away by rushing waters during a flash flood in Honokaa Saturday has been identified as Beth R. Radi.

At 10:42 p.m. Saturday, police and the Hawaii County Fire Department said Radi attempted to cross swift-moving, knee-deep waters from a river bed that overflowed across a driveway near her home at the 3900 block of Kahana Drive when she was swept away.

Dangerous conditions hindered efforts by crews to locate her and the search was postponed until Sunday. Radi’s body was found at shortly before 5:30 a.m. that morning in a stream about a quarter-mile away.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of death.
