The emergency relief period for damages sustained during the April 2018 flood has been extended.

On Saturday, Kaua‘i County Mayor Derek S. K. Kawakami has signed a fifteenth supplementary emergency proclamation that indicates the disaster emergency relief period shall now continue until terminated 60 days after June 20, 2020, or by a separate proclamation – whichever comes first.

The purpose of the emergency proclamation is to provide continued relief for disaster damages, losses, and suffering, and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of Kaua‘i residents and visitors.
