Kaui's Governor David Ige has declared the natural disaster a state of emergency and is committed to providing all available resources available to help the citizens of Kauai. Kuhio highway, near the Hanalei Bridge is still closed until until the bridge can be inspected and deemed safe.

The mayor, Bernard Carvalho, has signed an emergency proclamation. In addition, county buses shuttled 121 people from the Hanalei Elementary School to Princeville today after crews finished repairs to Hanalei Bridge.

Officials will continue rescue efforts when the weather improves. Both Kauai and Honolulu firefighters, along with the Coast Guard, have been dispatched for rescue operations. Tourists showed up at a Hanalei Elementary School shelter on Saturday evening due to flooding on the north shore of the island.

"While we have a long road to recovery ahead of us, we are incredibly grateful for everyone who has stepped to the plate to help in one way or another", he continued.

Those who wish to be evacuated are advised that it is unknown at this time when they can return home, as landslides continue to block access along Kūhiō Highway between Waikoko and Wainiha. Water and food for residents in those areas can be picked up at Camp Naue. School will resume on Wednesday, April 18. 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.
