Kauai Mayor Issues Proclamation of Emergency As Heavy Flooding Slams North Shore

Rescue crews airlift Countless Trashed Following Hawaii storm

Rescue crews airlift Countless Trashed Following Hawaii storm

This resulted in landslides and flooding and even hampered air rescues.

Sarah Blane, Kauai County spokeswoman, said by phone that rescuers airlifted 212 people from Wainiha and Haena after they were cut off from the rest of the island by landslides on Kuhio Highway past Hanalei Bay.

Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. said county, state, and federal agencies were working with volunteers from across the state to help those impacted by the flooding. Upon reopening the highway, the Kaua'i Bus worked with the American Red Cross to shuttle 121 people from the Hanalei Shelter back to Princeville.

HI-EMA Administrator Thomas L. Travis is working with Honolulu City and County Department of Emergency Management officials to determine what assets Oahu DEM can provide to assist Kauai County.

Officials will continue rescue efforts when the weather improves. Crews airlifting people were also planning to continue bringing in provisions to those areas.

For those remaining in Wainiha and Hā'ena, water and food supplies can be picked up at Camp Naue and at the Hanalei Colony Resort. Our first response team has also assessed the area and the major issue is the different rock falls and landslides all along from Wainiha - 6 or 7 of them.

The American Red Cross opened evacuation shelters at Kapaa Middle School, the Church of the Pacific in Princeville and at the elementary school. On Saturday afternoon, the Kalihiwai Reservoir was nearing capacity and residents in the low-lying areas were directed to evacuate as a safety precaution. The school will reopen Wednesday. Since that time, the dam has been inspected and it has been deemed safe for residents to return.
