WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) — Two West Maui properties have taken emergency measures to halt the growing shoreline erosion that threatens their buildings.
The Sands of Kahana Resort and the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel received special management area emergency permits last month to install protective materials along the shoreline, the Maui News reported Wednesday.
County shoreline planner Jim Buika said the erosion is from elevated sea levels and big winter storms.
