The governor of Hawaii has declared a state of emergency due to heavy rains

Earlier, the authorities recommended evacuating the population of several districts.

A state of emergency (ES) was introduced on Wednesday in Hawaii due to heavy rains and flooding. This was announced in his microblog on Twitter by the governor of the state, David Ige.

“I have just signed a document on the introduction of an emergency regime in the state of Hawaii. Heavy rains and flooding caused significant damage to private and public property on the islands,” the publication says. This measure allows local authorities to access some additional funds and use more resources in disaster management.

Earlier, the authorities recommended evacuating the population of several districts. The islands are preparing for the next impact of the elements, which is expected, according to meteorologists, on Friday.
