    Major Flooding in Kauai!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Loarie and his wife, of Oakland, California, arrived in Kauai, Hawaii, yesterday to a major rainstorm. 'The locals in Kauai were just as surprised as us to see the amount of rain and the extensive flooding,' he says. 'We made it to our destination safely, but roads north and south seemed to have been closed due to flash flooding and land slides.' There was about two feet of water and this morning, it was still raining.

    We arrived at Lihue Airport at 12pm March 5, 2012 to a major rainstorm. While driving to Princeville we encountered heavy rain and observed extensive flooding along highway 51 and 56. We recently heard at 10pm a landslide now blocks highway 56 going back to Kapaa and the bridges north of us or also closed for high water and more expected flash flooding! Heavy rain is expected tomorrow and I'm sure the flooding topped with high surf will cause much damage to many properties lining the coast.
