Princeville Kauai Real Estate Update for April 15 to April 21

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sold on Kauai Realty RB-18142

Aloha from Princeville Kauai,

By now, you’ve probably heard about the devastation on the Island brought on by over 27″ of rain within 24 hours. The torrential rains which began Friday, April 13 and continuing over the weekend, caused major landslides, collapsed roads and created overwhelming flooding on the island of Kauai.

Gov. David Ige and Mayor Bernard Carvalho toured the damage Monday morning by helicopter, surveying the overflowing Hanalei River, swamped neighborhoods and damanage throughout.

Hundreds of people on the North Shore were rescued when dozens of landslides cut them off from the rest of the Island. The Hawaii National Guard sent troops and equipment to assist in rescue efforts. Many residents were stranded without electricity or water.

Flood waters remained several feet deep several days later and more rains exacerbated the problems. It’s a miracle there were no deaths as flood waters changed the landscape, claiming the lives of pets and washing away entire homes. It’s amazing there was any real estate activity at all, but this is what occurred earlier in the week:

If you want to help Kauai, there are many legitimate sites accepting donations of goods and money. It’s going to take quite awhile for Kauai to recover from this natural disaster and help of most any type is appreciated and needed. If you’re thinking of buying or selling, put my experience to work for you. Until next time, enjoy your Paradise, wherever it may be.

Aloha from Princeville Kauai, Elaine
