Residents of Maui began feeling the effects of Tropical Storm Olivia Tuesday afternoon. This morning, communities on Molokai and Windward Maui are seeing heavy rains. But Maui County spokesperson Rod Antone said that wind and water are not the only threat to residents of the Valley Isle.

And Neil Hasegawa is one of the people helping those Hana residents remain self-sufficient. He’s the owner of the Hasegawa General Store in Hana. He joined us by phone for an update.

Intro music: Rainbow by G. Love & Special Sauce, Jack Johnson
