The 65 foot long passenger ship Spirit of Kona ran ashore and later sank near the Kailua-Kona Lighthouse on the island of Hawaii. The vessel broke free as Tropical Storm Darby passed over the island. The Spirit of Kona washed up on the rocks sustaining significant damage before the vessel drifted offshore and sank. No reports of injuries as no one was on board at the time of the incident. Authorities report large chunks of floatsom and diesel fuel along the shore. The passenger ship had some 600 gallons of diesel fuel on board along with hydraulic and lube oils. Reports state the vessel was valued over 1 million dollars (US).
