Workers pull a pickup out of the sand at Black Pot Beach Park in Hanalei after the historic floods in mid-April.

LIHUE — April’s historic flooding brought in about 70,000 cubic yards of sand to Hanalei Bay, according to a study from the University of Hawaii. That damaged Weke Road, destroyed the comfort station at Black Pot Beach and left erosion up to 12 feet deep in some areas.
