Red Flag Warning for Maui County

September 5, 2013
Maui Weekly

Smoke from a cane fire billowed above Hana Highway on the morning of Thursday, Aug. 29. Although this was a scheduled burn, the National Weather Service in Honolulu has recently posted a Red Flag Warning for Maui County, which means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now, or will shortly. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior.
