The city has established two disaster recovery centers to provide services and information to people whose property was damaged by the recent heavy rain and flooding in East Honolulu and Waimanalo.

The centers, announced by Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell and Gov. David Ige during Wednesday’s news conference, will be available Monday through Thursday at Waimanalo District Park and Koko Head District Park.

Recovery centers will be open at the following locations and times:

>> Waimanalo District Park, 41-415 Hihimanu St., noon to 8 p.m. Monday and Wednesday.

>> Koko Head District Park, 423 Kaumakani St., noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday.

Residents visiting the centers will be registered first, then invited to visit each of the participating organizations based on their particular needs. Residents should arrive prepared to provide some form of government-issued identification, insurance information, and details regarding the damage and losses incurred to their residence or business.

Numerous city and state agencies, along with nongovernment organizations such as the American Red Cross and the General Contractors Association of Hawaii, will provide information about available services and assistance.
