Hawaii News Now: Brown water advisory issued for Kauai

About 40 people - mostly tourists - were stranded Sunday at Hanalei Elementary School, where the American Red Cross had opened an evacuation shelter. Many roads are closed due to damage, including parts of Kuhio Highway. Our first response team has also assessed the area and the major issue is the different rock falls and landslides all along from Wainiha - 6 or 7 of them.

"We are slowly but surely getting food, water and medical supplies to those in need", he said in a statement.

HI-EMA Administrator Thomas L. Travis is working with Honolulu City and County Department of Emergency Management officials to determine what assets Oahu DEM can provide to assist Kauai County. With the reopening of the highway, the shelters at Hanalei Elementary School and the Church of the Pacific are now closed. School will resume on Wednesday, April 18. The advisory will be in effect until further notice. KIUC will continue to restore power on the north shore, as KIUC is able to access and fix its infrastructure.


When turning on your faucet after water service is restored, please allow your water to run until it is clear to ensure flushing of any air or sediment from your plumbing.

The state Department of Transportation is working to clear mud and debris from at least eight landslides on Kuhio Highway. Residents in low-lying areas of Kalihiwai Valley were evacuated Saturday afternoon as a precaution because the dam was nearing capacity. Officials will continue to monitor the reservoir. Two sinkholes have blocked off Weke road, near Black Pot Beach- as well as Hanalei Plantation road in Princeville. Do not call Kaua'i police 911 unless you have an emergency.

Not all coastal areas may be affected by flood runoff, but if the water is brown - stay out.
