The US state of Hawaii declared an emergency on Tuesday amid heavy flooding which caused widespread damage in the state.
-I've just signed an emergency proclamation for the State of Hawaii after heavy rains and flooding caused extensive damage to both public and private property across the islands- Governor David Ige said on Twitter.
-The emergency proclamation makes state general funds available that can be used quickly and efficiently to help those impacted by the severe weather, which is expected to continue until Friday- he continued.
At least six homes on the island of Maui and two bridges were heavily damaged or destroyed, according to the office of Maui County Mayor Michael Victorino.
