Hawaii announces emergency as winter storm lashes

Los Angeles: Governor David Ige of Hawaii has issued a state of emergency after a powerful winter storm dumped more than 30 cm of rain on portions of the island and is anticipated to continue.

According to reports, the governor stated in a statement that the decision would allow Hawaii to spend funds to provide "rapid and effective relief of pain, damage, and losses caused by floods and other repercussions of severe rainfall." Heavy rains from the Hawaiian Islands' "Kona low," a sort of seasonal storm, have flooded certain regions and knocked out power in parts of downtown Honolulu, the state capital, according to Ige.

Electric service in downtown Honolulu is still being restored, according to Hawaiian Electric, but it should be fully restored by Wednesday morning.
