Maui, Hawaii. February 12th, 2011.

WAILUKU, Maui – Heavy rains on Maui in the Waiehu area caused the ground to collapse, right next to a road’s shoulder. The huge hole is between Makaala Street and Wailupe Drive. The sinkhole is 15 feet deep and up to 40 feet wide; it’s big enough for a vehicle to fall into. Sources say it’s affecting drainage, fiber optics cables, and a sewer main. State workers and county public officials will discuss repair efforts on Monday. Drivers are advised that authorities may close a lane along Waiehu Beach Road when repairs begin.
