Snow in Hawaii cover the lowest grounds ever (photos & video)

A particularly rare phenomenon occurred on Hawaii islands and specifically on the second largest island Maui, where snow covered regions higher than 1800 meters. This is the lowest elevation that snow covered Hawaii ever.

 

Snow is not an unusual phenomenon on the greatest island of Hawaii, where volcanic tops, such as Mauna Kea and Loa, reach 4205 and 416 meters correspondingly.

Snow has been observed on Maui in 1952.
