U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawai‘i) released the following statement in response to severe flooding on O‘ahu and Kaua‘i on April 14 and 15, 2018:

“Communities on O‘ahu and Kaua‘i are starting to clean up the damage done by the flooding this weekend, but they need as much help as they can get,” Sen.r Schatz said. “I have reached out to the appropriate federal agencies—including FEMA, SBA, USDA and DOT—and let them know where we stand. They are ready to answer the call once Gov. Ige, Mayor Caldwell and Mayor Carvalho request assistance. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, I will work with the other members of the congressional delegation and do everything possible to help these communities get on the road to recovery.”
