FIRST PHOTO: At about 11:30 a.m. Friday, a large pipe broke inside Home Depot in Kahului, flooding the store and forcing customers outside.

SECOND PHOTO: Pukalani resident Karen Saka, who was in the store at about 11:40 a.m., said she saw a fountain at least 4 feet high and water flooding the store. A Wailuku resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said there were 10 trucks outside the store in the afternoon sucking up water. The problem appeared to have been repaired, he said. A person who picked up the phone at Home Depot said that the store was closed Friday. Messages requesting comment left for the store manager were not returned Friday.
