The record rainfall that dumped more than 28 inches of rain in 24 hours on Kauai, triggering floods and landslides, has dramatically altered the landscape around Hanalei and much of the North Shore.
As businesses, homeowners and construction crews continued their cleanup efforts, Google had been waiting for a clear day to capture images of the areas affected. It finally got one on Wednesday, April 18.
These are the first images captured by Google’s GeoEye-1 satellite since the flooding during the weekend of April 14-15.
