—Name of a chilly wind and rain at Waimea, Hawaiʻi.
“I choose this Hawaiian word because I live in Waimea, and experience this rain on a weekly, sometimes daily basis. Waimea is known for our paniolo and cold weather so it is only fitting to be introduced to our rain name.”
—Lilinoe Bal, Hawaiian 201 student, Hawaiʻi Community College
