At approximately 1:00 p.m. this afternoon, the Wailuku Civil Defense siren malfunctioned, sending an audible tone. THERE IS NO EMERGENCY.
This is the third siren malfunction in the last eight days. Last Monday an errant tone wafted over Olowalu. Tuesday it was the pulse-quickening wail in Haiku.
Maui County officials apologize for this inconvenience and are looking into the cause of the system malfunction. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
