Starting Over

Keawanui Fishpond was devastated by the historic Japan tsunami. Here are pictures of the fishpond on Friday morning, after the tsunami hit. Kamalo area was the hardest hit on Molokai, and the Keawanui pond wall took direct hits – the destruction was severe, the worse ever. The entire wall, over 1,200 feet long, will need repairing.

We were months away from finishing and closing the walls; now we will have to start over again. Looks like 12 months of work if we can get a crew of at least four people. The boys who work at the pond were stunned, but ready and willing to rebuild. A historical new chapter for Keawanui Fishpond.
