Honolulu’s Water Supply Commission crew responded to a break in the water mains, which made a large sinkhole in Waiau earlier today.

A 12-inch main burst at Kamahao Street near the Fukanike Street intersection before 5am

The nearby Waiau Elementary School was unaffected.

The Water Wagon is available to guests affected by the Hao Garden Court and Hao Garden Kai Town Home subdivisions on the corner of Hao Street and Hao Place, and near 98-524 Hao Place.

Two hydrants: one at the fire hydrant on Hookanike Street, opposite Waiau Elementary School, and the other at the fire hydrant on Koahhehe Street.

Residents of one area initially thought there was a storm when they heard the sound of water in a hurry. “The sound of water awakened me,” said Camille, who didn’t reveal her name. She left the town house and saw the water rushing along the porch.

The vehicle stopped in the sinkhole early in the morning after the driver tried to move the vehicle parked next to the curb. It was then removed by a tow truck.

No injuries have been reported, according to Water Department spokesman Blaine Fergerstrom.

The driver will be asked to avoid the area and look for another route until the repair is complete.
