A National Weather Service issued a Flash Flood Warning for Kaua‘i was canceled at 9:30 a.m., but the bridge remains closed, according to officials.

This is a developing story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
Perhaps if the river were properly maintained, and all the growth cleared out of it so the water could flow more easily out to sea, that area wouldn’t flood.
