Tourists stranded on Kauai in Hawaii due to severe flooding

Destructive Flooding and Mudslides Batter Parts of Hawaii

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.

Search and rescue efforts are continuing Tuesday after heavy rains battered the Hawaiian island of Kauai over the weekend, stranding hundreds at evacuation centers. Evacuation shelters also remain open at the Church of the Pacific in Princeville and at Hanalei Elementary School in Hanalei.

Plans to airlift them out of the school, which was surrounded by water, were abandoned because severe weather grounded helicopters, said Coralie Matayoshi, CEO of American Red Cross of Hawaii. "The Hawai'i National Guard has deployed two UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters, two CH-47 Chinooks, eight Zodiacs and more than 45 soldiers and airmen to support rescue efforts, and to get medical aid and necessary supplies to the area", Gov. Ige said.

"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", Carvalho said.

There were no immediate reports of injuries.

At least two homes have been destroyed.

China has vowed to protect its interests at any cost , announcing higher tariffs on US$50bn worth of United States imports. It also upgraded its forecast for USA growth in 2018 to 2.9%, up from 2.7% previously.

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.

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.

Resident Shauna Tuohy told HawaiiNewsNow that she was watching television with her mother when brown water suddenly began to pour through a wall in her home in Aina Haina.

The National Weather Service recorded 71.3cm of rainfall in Hanalei.

"It's definitely the worst storm in recent memory", Blane said. "It's highly likely that the record was broken by heavy rainfall after the gauge stopped recording", said meteorologist Chevy Chevalier. You can WhatsApp us on 07810 791 502.
