May 2, 2011 – Violent weather hit the Ala Moana Harbor causing heavy rain, hail, severe lightning, and dual water-spouts. After hours of this activity, 60,000 Honolulu area residents were left without power, while fire-crews responded to dozens of flooding reports. As far as we know there were no injuries.

These photos were taken by a friend of SWELL as the dual water-spouts enter the Ala Moana Harbor.

If these water-spouts reach land they are considered tornadoes. Notice the airplane in the background. Could you imagine if it was carrying passengers escaping the destruction of tornado alley!? Scary sight.
