The purpose of the emergency proclamation is to provide relief for disaster damages, losses and suffering as well as protect the health, safety and welfare of Kauai residents and visitors impacted by the flood.

The original emergency proclamation was signed on April 1 after Kauai experienced a torrential downpour during the nights of March 27 and 28. Damages resulting from the flash flood displaced at least 25 residents, according to Kauai police.

The fourth and latest proclamation will extend relief and assistance for another 60 days, or until a separate proclamation states otherwise.
