Lines of clouds hang in the sky above Maui as dissipated former tropical storm Wali reaches the island. Originally forecasted to bring nearly a foot of rain to most parts of the state, Wali instead delivered only a few inches of heavy rainfall to a couple of communities. The rain was enough to cause flooding in some areas and keep flood watches in effect for 3 days.
On this side of Maui, though, the effects of the storm were more beautiful than treacherous, showing only the organized remains of the leading edge.
From the Photographer:
