Aloha, Friends!
Our wonderful island is focusing on keeping safe during the Coronavirus outbreak. COVID-19 is impacting many of our local businesses, including KONAWEB, but we are happy to be onboard with the required preventive measures. We will not be charging our advertisers until personal movement and travel are deemed safe.
On June 25, 2020, a statewide order from Governor Ige states that you must self-quarantine for 14 days upon arriving in Hawai'i. Beginning August 1, individuals with a valid negative test up to 72 hours prior to their trip will be exempt from the quarantine.
Be aware that others on your flight may not have opted to test early and may be infected.

We know that many of you are "addicted" to the KONAWEB live webcam at Kailua Bay, and use the Big Island Forum for current info. We will keep them up and running for you! The popular Big Island Calendar of Events will be on hold through June, at least.
Keep Hawai'i in your hearts, and we will LOVE to see you when the time is right!   -Konabob and Shirley
Those of you who are in a position to do so, may to help keep KONAWEB online.

Was wondering because I was at Kona Canoe Club about 6:45 pm and Coast Guard helicopter flying up and down, viewing bay and close along the beachline, then going up around the headland, then back again and same all over, repeatedly.
Friend said another copter had been doing the same earlier, as tho looking for someone or something.

So a whole lot of flying and looking, which then stopped as the light faded.

ALSO on the sailboat that is beached on the rocks. I see a big pile of stuff that looks like it came off the boat (boat a lot cleaner) someone piled it on the grass at the seawall.
I'd love to know what the plan is with that boat.
