Storm Around Lihue
(Continued from page.l.)
Sunday was very little better,
although there were a few hours
of fairly calm weather during the
day. At night heavy rains began
again, and at about 2 a.m. another
wind storm of considerable force
started in, lasting several hours.
This was followed by exceedingly
heavy rains, on Monday, extend
ing all over the island.
HISTORIC TREES UPROOTED
Three of the oldest, largest and
prettiest trees in the park ot Lihue
Union church went down in the
storm. These trees were planted by
the early settlersjmany years ago,
and were of much historic interest.
In falling they bore down the elec
tric light wires, but no other dam
age was done.
Two of the pet trees in the vard
of Thh Gardkn Island were also
victims of the storm, hence this
black tvpe. At numerous other
pkces trees were blown down.
