Hail, Stranded Dogs and Gushing Waters

By Sophie Cocke and Nanea Kalani 03/06/2012

You might want to break out your trash can lids. Hail has already been reported in Aina Haina, and Honoluluís Department of Emergency Management has put out an alert that the pellets of ice and liquid could impact other areas of southeast Oahu.

Itís not exactly the image that the average tourist has when they envision lounging on Oahuís white sand beaches.

Hail is rare on Oahu, but falls elsewhere in Hawaii five to eight times a year, according to the Western Regional Climate Center. Sometimes it can get as big as marbles.

Meanwhile, the heavy rains are causing flooding throughout Kauai and Oahu, which continues to be under a flash flood warning.

Windward side of the Koolau Pali near Kailua.

Anyone got some good storm photos?
