ALL YOU PEOPLE and I feel so sorry for you as i was in the 1987 new year's eve flood, should call the city and have Mayor Mufi take care of this as the stream was probably not cleaned up as it should be periodically..swamp his office with calls..city is responsible for streams..it is always after the fact with our officials here..

people should prepare themselves instead of always waiting for government to do something for them. call when your stream mouth is closing from silt or debri,,,,after the rain is too late to be upset with anyone

I agree. After the relatively small earthquake closed down Oahu it became obvious that the only one you can count on is yourself in an emergency, Unfortunately a cute little stream has to transport all the water from the mountain to the ocean and becomes a river which destroys all in its path. All the damage from this one has not even been found yet.
Unbelieveably there were about a dozen swimmers at Makaha surfing beach yesterday. Even with all the no swimming signs.

Call Mufi , he is wasting our money on the cho cho train. If he can't fix the river , how do you expect him to get his rail going successfully.

There is a help line to call to report if you need to remove debris from your yard and unclog any drains from sewage so that your yard does not flood again. That is the state help line. They are organizing to get people out to help. It would help to call the mayor and governor's office to prod them on to offer more help to the people that need it. Sorry, I tried to post the number here but it would not allow me to because it said this forum does not allow postings of numbers. Check the newspapers for the number or call information.
