    Maui (Government) has an official site with closings and advisories, I didn't include it because there are currently no closings or advisories for Maui....except for the NWS flooding/rain advisory for the State of Hawaii.

    Some years ago we stayed at a timeshare in Princeville for a week in April. All week winds were 45 mph sustained with 60 mph gusts. Driving rain impaired visibility and there was dense fog. Not interested in ever going to Hawaii in April...and now this week with 32 inches of rain in 24 hours...yikes...it's bad there!

    I agree it's awful weather, but it's also EXTREMELY rare to have this sort of thing happen to this degree.

    Lets' hope it stays "extremely rare" and not a new normal due to climate change. Kaui's Congressional rep Tulsi Gabbard has put out a call for monetary donations for relief efforts.

    Your experience a few years ago and what has happened this year in Hawaii in April is contrary to the historical weather data for Hawaii in April. In April on average Honolulu gets about 1 inch of rain which is less than 1/2 the amount that it gets in the winter months. We are usually in Honolulu during the winter months and we have been there this April and have never experience so much rain while we are there. We have no car so that the constant rain has put a hamper on our outdoor activities since we usually walk or bus to everything. It has rained just about every day either during the day or at night. It rained again tonight. Those people who are in denial about global warming need to wake up and recognize the fact that something is different in the weather and that the oceans are rising whether it is global warming or just screwed up weather patterns. It is happening!

    I feel really awful about island nations that will be wiped out if the seas keep rising. Kauai is part of the USA (for better or worse) and FEMA will help with disasters there. But places like Tuvalu come to my mind, and they have even had to move ancestral graves as the sea swamps them with every big storm. Yes I too believe in undeniable science...all indicators point to rapid climate change happening NOW.

    I think you’re confusing weather with climate. Freak storms happen. It wasn’t all
    that many years that rains caused a dam to break near Hanalei. Current science isn’t showing any rapid rise in sea levels. Climate change occurs over much longer periods of time.

    It wasn’t that many years ago when it was the opposite and all the islands were in a severe drought.

    For 10 of the past 12 years, the drive from Kahului airport to the Ka'anapali Beach area was Pacific Ocean on one side and dry brown vegetation on the other side. The last two years that dry brown vegetation has been a lush green!

    Any update on the conditions in Hanalei? We'll be there next month, staying down in Poipu, but always like a day going to Hanalei and Ka'a beach.

    The road to Hanalei is fine - but the road past it (to Ke'e) will be closed for approximately 3 months - the last schedule that I saw said it would open in October, although it may open in increments before then.

    Just got back. Everything up to Hanalei is back to normal. But the road is closed from Hanalei Bay to the end of the road at Ke'e. We took a boat trip from Anini to the Na Pali coast and back. You could see major slipouts all along that road. And you could see construction taking place. I think it will be a long time until the entire road is open again. Google maps says end of the year, but I think that's just a placeholder. And probably optimistic.

    But, as I said, everything else is pretty normal.

    ETA - Denise, it looks like we crossed while posting. Where did you hear October? Sounds very optimistic to me.

    I saw a published work schedule online, and it said October - have no idea if it is accurate.

    Is the road to the Hanalei Pier open now? It was washed out and needed major repairs:

    You know, although we went to Hanalei Beach several times, we never wandered as far as the pier. So I don't know.

    The road to Hanalei pier is only open for locals.We parked at the northern end of Hanalei beach and walked the beach, we were there last week. Some of the houses on the southern end of Hanalei beach are in very bad shape. Its a shame, such a beautiful area.
