Stormy day on Hawaii's Big Island

storm

Location: Kohala Coast,Big Island, Hawaii

We knew a storm was headed our way, so I was not surprised to see this scene when I looked outside at about 8:30 this morning.  As it turned out, the storm dumped torrents of rain on some parts of the Big Island, and a waterspout was spotted off the Kona coast (well south of us).  Local news Web site Hawaii 24/7 has published a page with pictures of damage from today's storm, and a video clip of the waterspout.

Our district heard the thunder and got some rain, but not so much as elsewhere on the island.  Still, the rain was enough to make the flowers in our garden perk up.

I love storms and this looks like a good one. I've also been looking for a waterspout for a long time, and only saw one but it was quite a ways off.
Have a Merry Christmas.

Wow. This looks more like an enormous wave.
