Right above Hilo's iconic Rainbow Falls is a series of waterfalls called Boiling Pots. These waterfalls on the Wailuku River feature pools that appear to be "boiling" when water levels rise. This was taken one week after Hurricane Lane brought over 3 feet of rain to the area and caused record level flooding.
