Some winds and rains have the same name (as Kani-koʻo, Kīpuʻupuʻu, Lauʻawaʻawa, Līlī-lehua, and probably Moaniani-lehua); winds seem to bring the rains. Of the rains identified with islands, 15 are on Oʻahu, 12 on Maui, 9 on Hawaiʻi, and 4 on Kauaʻi. They are nearly always in wet coastal areas (except Lahaina), and almost none in the uninhabited wet areas. The lehua flower is associated with rain and occurs in six of the rains listed here.
