  • Destructive Flooding and Mudslides Batter Parts of Hawaii

The governor issued an emergency proclamation for the island Sunday following the National Weather Service's recording of nearly 27 inches (68 centimeters) of rainfall in a 24-hour period in Hanalei.

By this morning, emergency crews had evacuated 152 people by helicopter, 121 by bus and others by water after the River Anahola broke its banks.

The American Red Cross has opened evacuation shelters at Kapaa Middle School, the Church of the Pacific in Princeville, and at Hanalei Elementary School in Hanalei.

The National Weather Service recorded nearly 27 inches (68 centimeters) of rainfall in a 24-hour period in Hanalei.

Plans were to pick them up by helicopter, however, the choppers were grounded most of the day because of the severe weather.

Dozens of people are stranded at a Red Cross shelter on Kauai after a storm dropped over 2 feet of rain, causing massive flooding and grounding rescue helicopters.

On Sunday night, another 21 people made their way to the shelter on personal watercraft and boats, she said.

Emergency officials are advising people who want to evacuate that it's unknown when they'll be able to return because of landslides blocking highway access. The houses were vacant, she said. Several roads from Hanalei to Haena have been washed out.

"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. Miraculously, as of now, no deaths or injuries related to the storm have been reported.

The Red Cross said volunteers knew of four destroyed homes in Wainiha, on the north shore, and there are probably more homes damaged in Koloa, on the south side, based on aerial photos. That's very close to the record of 28.54 inches set in the 24 hours between 4 a.m. March 4 and 5, 2012.

It's most likely that the rainfall over Hanalei that caused widespread flooding Saturday night set a new record, but a lost gage will make it hard to verify, according to National Weather Service officials.
