AINA HAINA, Hawaii - Residents on Liwai Street in Aina Haina that were affected by April's historic flood rains, got a visit Saturday by the Federal Emergency Management Agency team. Torrential downpours in April caused some of the worst flooding East Oahu residents have seen in three decades.  Homes that were lived in for years were washed out in a matter of 24 hours.  

The FEMA Disaster Assistance teams went door to door to assist in any way that they can. "We direct them to the Aina Haina Elementary school (FEMA Registration Intake Center) that's still taking registrations or we offer to do them right there; it only takes about 15 to 20 minutes and then we go the next house."

FEMA says it is shutting down the Keolu Registration Intake Center but the Aina Haina center will remain open. Beginning Monday, July 9, the center will be open daily from 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. It's at Aina Haina Elementary, 801 W. Hind Drive.
