This is just horrible.
It’s beautiful there and so many live there or vacation there.

Dh and I have a soft spot for Kauai, b/c that's where we got married. My favorite spot on the island is Hanalei, which was hit the worst. We have friends there and are trying to reach them. I don't think I could ever live on an island :-(

There are a bunch of pix in the article which I didn't c&p.

Dh wants his ashes there too. We messaged them, no reply yet. They're in Poipu (where we were married), it looks like it wasn't as bad there.

That's a bit of relief but still scary. I hope you hear from them soon?
Sweet your hubby wants his ashes there.
