Huge hail on Maui, 1898/1868.

On the afternoon of Sunday, February 20, a hail storm fell at Kokomo, Makawao. This kind of storm went on for about maybe 15 or 20 minutes. The size of the hail [hua hekili] was like marbles. The locals of that area said, 30 years ago, a hail storm like this fell at Paia, and the size of the hail was like that of chicken eggs.
