DLNR News Release-Moloka’i Forest Reserve Closed Until Further Notice, Feb. 1, 2019

Posted on Feb 1, 2019 in Latest News

(Kahului) – Wet and windy weather caused trees to fall across the road corridor in the Moloka‘i Forest Reserve on Moloka‘i.  The DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife closed the reserve this morning and due to the weather, repair crews are unable to get into the area with heavy equipment and machinery to clear debris.

If the weather clears sufficiently to allow crew access, the closure is anticipated to continue through next week.  Continued inclement weather could extend the closure.
