HONOLULU — A day after Mayor Rick Blangiardi declared an emergency for the City and County of Honolulu resulting from the Kona low weather system affecting the island, neighborhoods are dealing with the damage the storm brought.

Heavy rains, strong winds and flooding have caused several closures.

As of 8:15 a.m., multiple electrical outages have been reported across the island from Makapuu to Waianae, with a significant outage in Downtown Honolulu. Hawaiian Electric advises customers to prepare for extended outages as crews continue to assess the damage before beginning repair efforts.

Freeways and roads are experiencing wet conditions, so motorists are advised to drive with caution and be advised of possible road damage. Earlier Tuesday morning, a landslide occurred in the Tantalus area between the addresses of 4120 and 4126 Round Top Drive.

As of 6 a.m. HST Tuesday, the following schools are closed, according to the Hawaii State Department of Education website:

  • Farrington High School
  • Pearl City Highlands Elementary
  • Red Hill Elementary

All City and County of Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation parks have reopened Tuesday morning. Damage from heavy rain overnight is still being assessed, so individual park facilities may remain closed if deemed unsafe for the public.

The Department of Parks and Recreation’s People’s Open Markets are canceled Tuesday.

Park programs may be impacted by the heavy rain. Anyone organizing an event should contact the organizer to determine if the activity will still be held.

Emergency shelters at Kalakaua District Park, Makaha Community Park, Sunset Beach Recreation Center and Kailua District Park remain open.
