Princess Nahienaena Elementary School fourth grader Nu’u Kapu, 9, cools off with a jump into the waters off Lahaina Harbor earlier this month. He took his dip after his second day back at school. He said the best part of school so far was being able to see his friends. Maui residents have spent the month trying to beat the heat as the island continues to see record-level temperatures throughout August. On Wednesday, temperatures reached 93 degrees in Kahului, tying the record set on the same day in 2004.
