Drought in upcountry Maui, 1912.

KULA CRIES OVER THE SCORCHING SUN

We have received word that the district of Kula, Maui is once again faced with humid heat, and they are distressed over water; there is little water flowing through the pipes of Kula both day and night. There is a great need for rain to fall in this district, because the crops are beginning to dry out, and the animals are also suffering. Before, Waihee was known never to have water shortages, but they are starting to see problems due to lack of water because of the length of this period of drought with no rainfall.
