Surreal Footage Shows The Devastating Recent Flooding Across The Hawaiian Islands

Our island paradise receives an average of 271 sunny days each year – compared to just 205 days for the national average – but they don’t call it the Rainbow State for no reason. While we love a good rainbow, unfortunately, that also means Hawaii is no stranger to tropical storms and flash flooding. That was evident more than ever this week when major parts of the island chain were inundated with rain and flash floods caused devastation across the state.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

We hope that everyone in Hawaii was able to stay safe during this period of heavy rainfall and that damage is repaired as quickly as possible. In lighter talk, did you know that Hawaii is home to one of the wettest places in the world? That’s right, Kauai’s own Mount Waialeale receives an average of 450 inches of rainfall each year.
