Landfills Expected to Remain Open; Parks, Recreational Facilities, Campgrounds to Close

Due to the high level of uncertainty as to Tropical Cyclone Ana’s track and strength, County parks, campgrounds and recreational facilities will be closed Saturday, Oct. 18, 2014. Facilities will reopen following appropriate safety assessments at each Park site. Campsites will be closed starting today, Friday, Oct. 17. Unless weather conditions are worse than predicted, all Maui County landfills are expected to remain open tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 18, with normal schedules except on Molokai, which will close early at 1:00 p.m. due to staffing levels.

Tropical Cyclone Ana’s progress is being monitored closely at the Maui County Civil Defense Agency and officials will keep an eye on the storm’s development over the weekend. A Tropical Storm watch has just been issued for Maui County.

“It is very important that our community remains vigilant due to the fact that storms like this are very unpredictable,” said Mayor Alan Arakawa. “Past storms such as Iselle have caused significant and unexpected damage, so we need everyone to stay alert and continue to monitor weather advisories. We’re not out of the woods yet.”
