Here are videos I shot at Lydgate Beach Park this past Wednesday, showing the consequences of last Sunday's flash flood. Massive amounts of wood washed down from the forests and into the nearby Wailua River.
The first video shows the drift wood that piled up inside the main swimming pond, where it was eerily void of the usual 1-3 dozen visitors I usually see there.
The second video shows how even entire trees were washed away, and now buckle about with the waves, like ominous sea monsters trying to climb the protective boulders.
The third video shows the area just south of the swimming ponds. All of this floating wood bumping into each other will have to be moved away to make it safe for swimming again.
