The two were among 19 records set statewide for the driest October on record, hydrologist Kevin Kodama said in a report issued earlier this month.
Those locations included Mt. Waialeale on Kauai, the wettest place in Hawaii with more than 393 inches annually, making it also one of the wettest spots in the world. The rainfall there last month was 5.14 inches, nearly 1½ inches less than the previous driest October.
Mt. Waialeale typically sees more than 33 inches of rain during that month.
