Why do folks cross bridges that are flooded over and potentially weakened?  Yes, I know… to get to the other side.

  1. Just left Kauai two days ago! I took exactly the same picture of the green fields as the one above. Can’t believe it’s full of water now! Love love love Kauai :)

  2. wow crazy I miss kauai alot always home to me.

  3. wow crazy I know kauai has been in a drought but not any more I miss kauai alot.

    • Really? A drought on Kauai. It may be true but hard to believe for one of the rainiest places on earth. Just like when Iniki hit in 92 I am confident Kaua’i’s residents will turn it around soon and the island will be God’s paradise on earth once again. I, too, miss Kauai.

  4. My husband and I left March 1, it was pouring rain that day…I guess it never stopped,,,,Hope everyone is ok

  5. My sister and I were in Kauai for two weeks and left last Thursday. We were lucky. Our hearts break for all of the residents and visitors and you are in our prayers.

  6. God Bless and Keep Everyone Safe, stay off the highways if you can.
