Hawaii County fire officials say a Hilo home was heavily damaged by Monday's storm and the home's roof was thrown about 250 feet.
Fire crews responded Monday just before 5 p.m. near the intersection of Hoopuni Street and Iloko Street.
Fire officials say a 30-foot-by-30-foot section of the roof was thrown about 250 feet to the southwest of the home. While in the air, the roof struck the top of a 30-foot-tall utility pole dislodging the cross beam and high tension power lines.
There was also heavy water damage to the residence and its contents. Fire officials say one-third of the home had the roof attached.
Two people were home at the time -- one sustained minor injuries.
Damage was estimated at $80,000. The Red Cross is helping the family of four with housing, food, household items and clothing.
