More Than 100 Airlifted After Storm Strikes Kauai

More Than 100 Airlifted After Storm Strikes Kauai

The town of Hanalei received 28.15 inches of rain over a 24-hour period, which is just shy of the town's 28.54 inches over 24 hours back in 2012.

"The north shore of Kauai experienced flash flooding with waters rising between five and eight feet above average due to the severe thunderstorms and heavy rains, trapping many residents inside their homes and on rooftops", it said in a statement. As of about 9:30 a.m., there have been about 15 to 20 rescues on land.

Rain and flooding Saturday night caused multiple mudslides, as well as power and water outages. But Kauai County spokeswoman Sarah Blane said the helicopters were grounded when heavy rainfall continued.

The organization later said the floodwaters had receded enough to allow the residents to be bussed to another of the Red Cross's five shelters set up on the island.

The flash flood warning was finally lifted early on Monday morning, but the damages are still being assessed while rescues of flood survivors are now happening. Miraculously, as of now, no deaths or injuries related to the storm have been reported.

"At this time, we believe that the homes were vacant when the incident occurred", said Kauai Emergency Management Agency Administrator Elton Ushio.

"The Hawai'i National Guard was deployed yesterday, and I am committed to identifying and mobilizing additional state assets needed to keep the community safe", said Gov. Ige".
