TS Darby updates throughout the day are posted at:

Due to the arrival of Tropical Storm Darby, Maui County will be closing all outdoor park facilities on Saturday morning, July 23, 2016. This includes all campsites, pools, fields, beach parks, pavilions, stadiums and the golf course.

All Department of Parks & Recreation programs, community classes and other activities held in these areas are likewise canceled until further notice. Community centers and gymnasiums will remain open for the time being.

The county also asks that as a precaution, businesses and residents should try to conserve water during the storm. This includes turning off the tap while washing your hands and brushing your teeth, flushing the toilet less frequently and making sure to turn off any outside sprinkler systems.

Finally, police and fire department officials ask that motorists keep all non-essential travel down to a minimum during the storm.


Maui County officials are urging motorists to avoid travel on the Hāna Highway (360) as Tropical Storm Darby approaches.The recommendation comes after the extended closure of the highway three times since Sunday, July 17, 2016, due to separate landslides.


Please stay indoors and leave the roadways for emergency personnel use.
