Recently, a 74-foot sailing vessel named Hawai’i Aloha capsized and grounded near Kaupulehu. The entire crew had to abandon ship, using life rafts to escape, but one crewmember is still missing after several days.

The Hawai’i Aloha’s grounding is just one of similar ship groundings that happened on the same weekend in Hawaii because of a storm, according to the Department of Land and Natural Resources.

The largest ship grounded in the storm was a 780-foot container ship in Honolulu Harbor.
