Mayor visits North Shore

Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. completed a site visit Thursday to communities in Lumahai, Wainiha and Haena.

“Today’s mission was productive, as I was able to see in person exactly what our people still need,” Carvalho said. “There’s no shortage of aloha on the North Shore. I am amazed and truly grateful for our community members who, even in the face of their own personal disasters, are out here working tirelessly to help clear roadways and debris, and get food and supplies to others.”

Due to the abundant amount of donated items collected, the Kauai Emergency Management Agency announced that the Princeville Airport and Koloa Neighborhood Center will no longer serve as drop-off sites for donations. Those who wish to provide donations are asked to coordinate with KEMA at 241-1800.

“We have an outstanding Kaua‘i community that has quickly provided a vast amount of food, clothing, and other necessities for the flood victims on our island,” said Elton Ushio, KEMA administrator.

Air evacuations will resume today from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. About 450 people have been evacuated via air operations since Monday.

    Some would say to just get results. Thanks to federal aid, many people were able to escape the area to safe locations. What was the total amount on this disaster area? I saw David Ige on the news. Kauai visit earlier in the week.
