HILO, Hawaii (AP) — A famous waterfall on the Big Island has dried up.
Hawaii News Now says the 80-foot Rainbow Falls in Hilo normally creates a deafening sound as water rushes into a large pool below. But, these days there is no sound at Rainbow Falls. Hilo resident Paul Miyasaki says it is the first time in recent memory that the famous falls has run dry.
It appears the problem is too little rain. The National Weather Service says the Big Island is experiencing rainfall levels that are well below average.
