SEE IT: Hawaii Suffers Massive Flooding, Dam Breaches, and Washed Out Bridges

Our prayers go out to our fellow Americans in Hawaii. 

Paradise?  Not this week.

The Aloha State is suffering from some of its most extreme flooding in modern history this week, as the normally idyllic vacation location turns turgid and tragic.

The entire state of Hawaii was under a flash flood watch Tuesday morning after heavy rain overflowed a dam and forced people to evacuate their homes for fear of fast-rising waters and landslides.

“Deep moisture will remain over the state through tonight,” the National Weather Service in Honolulu warned early Tuesday.

The grounds were already saturated from heavy rainfall Monday that caused the Kaupakalua Dam on the island of Maui to overflow. The weather service said Tuesday that the dam could fail.

Maui officials, who had thought Monday that the dam had failed, said later that it had not suffered structural damage. Still, those in Haiku near the Kaupakalua Dam and Kaupakalua Road were ordered to evacuate, according to Facebook posts on the Maui County page.

Social media users were soon sharing images of the catastrophe online.

Our prayers go out to our fellow Americans in Hawaii.
