Nonsense! I used to see dust devils frequently on the fallow sugar cane fields of Kunia from my house in old town Ewa. In the 90's, and maybe even today, the fields were used to develop hybrid corn. The fields surrounding the test corn were deliberately barren to prevent cross pollination. The empty fields of red dirt would give birth to orange dust devils hundreds of feet high that danced across the aina in the afternoon sun.

Dust devils are often seen in North West Hawaii in the lava fileds behind Waikoloa and Mauna Lani Resorts and as far North as Kohala Ranch during windy periods.

I know some men who rival dust devils for chaos.
