Explanation

The Aloha Spirit is a well known reference to the attitude of friendly acceptance for which the Hawaiian Islands are so famous. However, it also refers to a powerful way to resolve any problem, accomplish any goal, and also to achieve any state of mind or body that you desire.

In the Hawaiian language, aloha stands for much more than hello or goodbye or love. Its deeper meaning is the joyful (oha) sharing (alo) of life energy (ha) in the present (alo).

Damage Hits Home For Many Residents
Jeff Booth

Over the past 48 hours, Kaaawa has seen some of the most severe weather and Friday people got a chance to get out and start assessing the damage.

Some of those living near The Crouching Lion Inn are finding that recovery could be a very long and slow going road. That's where two households are stranded. A rock and mud slide has made it impossible to leave and knocked out the power in the process.

"It sounded like thunder. It was raining light, not too hard," said resident Douglas Kekona. "I thought it was thunder until I saw the tree actually sliding down the driveway."

Kekona and his mother are in the dark, literally. They've got no electricity or utilities and they're using candles after the sun sets.

"The mud is coming loose on the other side of that and another big storm like that or even just more rain would probably set that off," Abreu said.

Flooding in 2004

Flood descimates building, work at University of Hawaii
By James Gonser and Dan Nakaso, The Honolulu Advertiser

HONOLULU — Heavy rain sent water as much as 8 feet deep rushing through the University of Hawaii's main research library Saturday, destroying irreplaceable documents and books, toppling doors and walls and forcing a few students to break a window to escape.

Flood water also washed through a biomedical lab, destroying at least a third of a professor's collection of flies used for genetic research.

Ten inches of rain fell in 24 hours starting Saturday morning in the Manoa Valley near Waikiki. Several cars were carried downstream when Manoa Stream overflowed its banks, and a school and church that were supposed to serve as polling places for Tuesday's election also were damaged.

Manoa residents shoveled mud and debris out of their homes Sunday, while University of Hawaii officials canceled Monday classes and estimated damage in the millions after daybreak revealed the full extent of damage caused by the Halloween Eve flood.
