The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency says that 260 Big Island homes were damaged from Tropical Storm Iselle.
According to the state, just over 1,400 people showed up to Hawaii county disaster recovery centers. 903 people reported some type of damage from the storm.
The damage ranges from moderate to severe and includes everything from ruined clothes and bedding to structural damage of their homes.
"It's very stressful not having any lights or anything. You have to go out and look for water, who's giving water, who's giving food, or whatever people are offering and that's all we have to do is take whatever people are offering us," said Rose Joseph, a Hawaiian Beaches resident.
FEMA also wrapped up its preliminary assessment regarding damage to individual homes. It won't release those numbers until the governor makes a formal request for assistance from the United States President.
If the president were to give a disaster declaration, new centers for help would open.
In the meantime, if you still need assistance on the Big Island you can call the All Hands Volunteers group in Pahoa at 808-464-3175. The group partners with the Aloha United Way.
