State, county workers and volunteers provide emergency relief after stormsPosted on Mar 30, 2021 in Capitol Connection, Featured, Main
Governor Ige issued an emergency declaration March 9 for the entire State of Hawai‘i in the wake of heavy rains that caused flooding and landslides. The disaster emergency relief period, which continues through May 8, 2021, makes state funds immediately available to help affected communities.
Residents from Hale‘iwa and Hau‘ula to Haʻikū and Hanalei are still recovering from the effects of the storms that pounded the islands last month. Governor Ige toured some of the hardest-hit areas to thank state and county emergency workers and community volunteers who have provided supplies and equipment to help their neighbors in need.
