A boulder came crashing down into a Kalihi Valley neighborhood Monday night.

Honolulu police say a boulder weighing about 100 to 150 pounds fell onto Kula Kolea Place.

It did not damage any homes, but it landed about 30 yards from someone’s property.

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources crews are working to determine who owns the hillside.

No one was injured and residents were not evacuated.

It’s not the first time a boulder has crashed in the area.

In April 2012, the boulders — one the size of a small car — came crashing down the hillside and damaged three homes on Kula Kolea Place.

No one was injured or killed in that incident.

KHON2 later learned that the boulders came from a property owned by a Maui couple and the Church of the Christ Redeemed Lord.

Even though the state didn’t own the hillside, it paid $150,000 for rockfall mitigation.

Residents were warned back then that more boulders could come crashing down.
