Aloha, Oahu! We hope you’re staying safe and dry during these intense rains. Here at Hawaii Water Damage Restoration, we know firsthand how disruptive and damaging heavy rainfall can be. Our team has been working around the clock to help our neighbors get through this challenging time.

The National Weather Service issued a flood watch for Oahu starting this past Tuesday, with heavy rains, flash flooding, and thunderstorms expected to continue through the weekend. This weather event, caused by a Kona Low—a type of slow-moving storm system—has brought significant rainfall to the island, resulting in widespread flooding and some landslides in certain areas​ (Honolulu Star-Advertiser)​​ (UPI)​.

The heavy rains have led to various issues across Oahu, including standing water on roads, blocked culverts, and potential disruptions to utilities. In response, Honolulu’s Department of Facility Maintenance has been proactive, using heavy equipment to mitigate flooding risks by clearing stream mouths and moving sand at vulnerable points like the Kaelepulu Stream at Kailua Beach Park​ (Honolulu Star-Advertiser)​.

Governor Josh Green has even proclaimed a disaster emergency relief to assist with the emergency response to these severe weather conditions​ (UPI)​. As a community, we must stay vigilant and cautious during these times. Avoid non-essential travel and steer clear of flood-prone areas to ensure your safety.
