Strong winds have resulted in several downed trees around the island in addition to the closure of Wahiawa Botanical Garden.

Nathan Serota, spokesman for the city Department of Parks and Recreation, said crews are addressing two fallen ironwood trees at Kailua Beach Park. In addition, a large portion of an opiuma tree fell at Kaiaka Bay Beach Park near the soccer field but is not obstructing any other passageways or park facilities.

At Kapiolani Park, two kiawe trees fell near the Diamond Head tennis courts, one of which fell onto a light pole. No injuries have been reported.

Wahiawa Botanical Garden will remain closed today, he said, due to strong winds creating hazardous conditions.
