Hawaii officials have shut down an area of water just off the southern coast of Maui after a kayaker was killed in an apparent shark attack there Monday. It was the second such death in Maui this year, continuing a worrisome trend for Hawaii after a decade of relative quiet that has been disturbed by an increase in shark attacks over the last two years.
