Sun Blocked by Smoke.—Last week, the sun was totally covered over by the smoke blown from the volcano of Kau on Hawaii, and the sun appeared red. On Monday, the Kona winds blew in the evening, and much heavy rains fell in Honolulu nei. On Tuesday evening, it turned into strong winds which are still blowing now.
