STATE’S DISASTER DECLARATION NOW EXTENDED TO MAUI COUNTY


On behalf of Gov. David Ige, Lt. Gov. Josh Green issued a supplemental emergency proclamation declaring not only the Pali Highway a disaster area, but also part of Maui County.

Honoapi‘ilani Highway, Route 30 in Maui suffered extensive damage because of recent heavy rains.

The Pali Highway suffered several landslides and was declared a disaster area on Feb. 22.

The supplemental emergency proclamation authorizes the expenditure of state monies as appropriated for the quick and efficient relief of extensive damage to the Pali Highway and to a portion of Honoapi‘ilani Highway. It also gives the governor certain powers that allow him to expedite emergency management functions which include protecting the health, safety and welfare of Hawai‘i’s residents and visitors.

The disaster relief period expires on April 22, 2019.

Gov. Ige is traveling back to Honolulu on Tuesday, after attending the National Governors Association Winter Meeting in Washington, D.C. Lt. Gov. Josh Green is serving as acting governor.
