Mayor Signs Emergency Proclamation for March 2020 Flood Event

LIHU`E, KAUA`I (Ben Caxton) — Mayor Kawakami has signed yet another an emergency proclamation. The measure signed on April 1, for the County of Kaua`i, deals with the effects of flash flooding that occurred on March 28. Fortunately, all of the essential construction and repairs needed for damaged infrastructure and homes caused by the March 2020 flood are already permitted under another Kawakami emergency order dealing with the Wuhan COVID-19 Coronavirus. Kawakami and officials from the Kaua`i Emergency Management Agency (KEMA) surveyed areas around Wailua on Sunday to gauge the extent of the damage from Saturday’s flooding event. The County is gathering information to evaluate eligibility for any Federal or State assistance programs based on the extent of damage. Those impacted are urged to report their damages to KEMA using their online reporting tool. Please go to and click on the “March 2020 Flood Damage Report” tab, or call KEMA at 241-1800.
