HELCO reports that most residents now have electricity and most stores now have ice, but the cleanup after Iselle continues.
“We have made some great progress,” says Kellie Swift, who has been working with others to clear fallen trees in Kapoho. But she adds, “There is still a huge need getting rubbish into the dumpsters and off the streets and [we] need people with chainsaws to help with the massive pile of branches”. She estimates that the volunteer crews “still have at least 2-3 days of saw work. And [we] need people with trucks that can help move debris piles to dumpsters.”
