    Sen. Mazie Hirono Speaks With Community Volunteers at Camp Naue on Kauai.

WAINIHA – Sen. Mazie K. Hirono joined Mayor Bernard Carvalho, Jr., soldiers from the Hawaii National Guard, and emergency management officials to assess storm damage on Kauai’s North Shore and discuss ways the federal government can assist community residents as they work to recover from the storm.

“Over the past two weeks, we’ve seen an overwhelming outpouring of aloha from the entire state to support recovery efforts,” she said. “Today, I saw first-hand how these communities are working together to rebuild and recover. I will work to ensure federal resources are available to these communities and families in the weeks and months ahead.”

Residents in the Wainiha and Ha‘ena area who missed the Motor Vehicle Registration deadline on April 30 will have until May 31 to renew their registrations without a fee.

Starting on today, a shuttle service will be provided for isolated Wainea-Haena residents to Hanalei and Kilauea. Residents will be issued a day-only pass that is good for any county bus across the island once they are transported from Wainiha.

Passes are limited to a first-come, first-served basis and are available from 1 to 7 p.m. daily from Mike Dahilig at the County of Kauai office at the Hanalei Colony Resort a day prior to traveling.

One outbound route will leave the Wainiha checkpoint daily at 6 a.m., while one return route leaves the Kilauea post office at 6 p.m. Large items are not allowed on the bus, but residents may bring two grocery-sized bags.

    Glad to see them back in order. Many people affected. Interestingly enough is the flood area. But what is the total cost to this damage? Federal relief efforts. It has nothing to do with Donald Trump. Of which did you happen to see the latest news on him? What was their relationship like? On the law suit of Storm Daniels against Donald Trump? She is a adult film actress. Interesting news.
