Aloha from Princeville Kauai,
You may have heard that the flooding on Kauai brought on by the endless rains in mid-April may have set a national record for rainfall in 24 hours. A rain gauge just West of Hanalei recorded 49.69″ of rain. If verified by the National Climatic Extremes Committee, which is part of NOAA, it would enter the record books as the heaviest 24-hour rainfall total ever recorded in the U.S. That’s a lot of rain for one small island!
Despite the flooding and damage to the North Shore, Kauai, with the exception of Wainiha and Haena, is up and running and eager to welcome visitors. Businesses that survived the flooding are now threatened by loss of income due to visitor cancellations. If you were planning a trip to Kauai, please do come and see the resiliency and beauty of our Island for yourself.
As for real estate, it was a mixed bag, with absolutely no new listings in condos this week, but there were three new escrows and two sales. Single family homes made up for the lack of new condo listings with four new home listings, but no new escrows or price changes. Here is your update:
