Kona low threatens Lahaina nearshore waters

This week’s Kona low storm was anticipated to be the first big rain in Lahaina since the wildfire that destroyed the heart of the historic town and left toxic ash and chemicals at risk of being washed into the ocean. But as of Thursday evening, not enough rain had fallen in West Maui to trigger a citizen science group from taking planned water quality measurements.
