HONOLULU, Dec. 25 (UPI) -- If you want a white Christmas, go to ... Hawaii?
The Big Island of Hawaii received a blizzard warning for the summits of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea volcanic peaks Wednesday.
Both Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa are above 11,000 feet in elevation. The National Weather service warned no one should travel up there to drive or hike the summits, and if they did go up there, to bring a survival kit. The National Park Service closed the trails up the mountains.
Below the summits, there were warnings of flooding rains, presenting the danger of flash floods on Thursday.
