I lived on Maui, the Valley Island, for 27 years. I moved back to southern California just after 911 because the economy took a deep downward turn
for my employer and my landlord had to sell the condo I had rented for the past 10 years.
While I lived there I had some very vivid disastrous. In one dream that I had I clearly saw, felt and smelled Kahului Harbor being shelled, over and
over, by a submarine. The dream was so real that I was really shook up for a long time. I shared my dream with an old timer, who was a friend of
mine, and he told me not to worry, that my dream had already happened. It did, during WW11!
Just before dusk on December 15th, a submarine lobbed about ten shells into the harbor area of Kahului on Maui, and three that hit a pineapple
cannery caused limited damage.
Another really vivid and clear dream I had occurred while I lived upcountry in a rural area. A huge tsumani had hit Maui and our community was
isolated from supply delivery, because the roads were out, and there was no electricity so no fresh water was being pumped up to where we were. I was
forced to walk from Haiku, on the easern slopes of Haleakala, all the way to the other side of the island, to Lahaina, where there was food, medicine
and doctors and fresh water. In my dream, a raft/boat was needed to cross the valley that separated the West Maui Mountains from the Haleakala side
of the island.
In my dream, the tsumani came from the west and had also flooded the Iao Valley, which connects Wailuku and Olowalu (the Lahaina area), effectively
turning Maui into 2 islands. The Iao Valley has a "stream" called the Iao Stream, that used to be a river before they chanelled, dammed and
canalled it. The water was shallow and reedy, but couldn't be crossed, and we needed to take a boat from Olowalu to cross the new salt water Iao
As it turns out, according to a geologist that I spoke to, my dream is sure to have happened in history, but is also sure to happen again. It's just
a matter of time. Maui is destined to one day become 2 separate islands.
I wonder if it will happen within my lifetime.
