ASTONISHING WATERS AT HALAWA, MOLOKAI.
O Kuokoa Newspaper: Aloha oe.
On the night of February 27, 1883, at perhaps 10 o’clock, a shockingly huge amount of water rushed down the river of Halawa, Molokai.
Here is what was shocking:—On the 27th, the wind was perfectly calm, and there was no big rain. However, that night, the waters of the rivers of Moaula and Hipuapua came violently down and swept away 2 fishing canoes. One of these canoes was brought back on land but was broken up; the other is gone.
That is just some small news from here in Halawa, Molokai.
Aloha to the Editor and to the typesetting Boys of the press my delight.
