City, state and Red Cross workers made house-to-house checks in flood-ravaged areas yesterday to determine the scope of the damage caused by days of heavy rain on O'ahu and Kaua'i.
Among the hardest-hit areas on O'ahu were Waialua, Hale'iwa, Wai'anae, La'ie, Waipahu and parts of Mililani, officials said.
Coralie Matayoshi, American Red Cross Hawai'i Chapter chief executive, said her volunteers had determined that on O'ahu, at least 190 homes were damaged and 34 of those were badly damaged or destroyed.
