Falling trees damage building at UH Manoa | News
MANOA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow)- Strong winds caused two large trees to fall on to a building at the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus.
Portions of the trees, a ficus and a coconut, broke off at 9:45 a.m. Thursday when school was out of session for winter break.
Campus security officers found the large branches on the makai side of Hemenway Hall. The falling trees damaged about 20 feet of rain gutter and bent a metal hand rail, the University says.
Crews are cutting the Ficus into smaller pieces so it can be removed from the area.
