By the authority vested in me as Governor by the Constitution and laws of the State of Hawai’i, in order to provide relief for disaster damages, losses, and suffering, and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the people, I, DAVID Y. IGE, Governor of the State of Hawaii, hereby determine, designate and proclaim as follows:
WHEREAS, pursuant to Chapter 1 27A, Hawaii Revised Statutes, emergency powers are conferred on the Governor of the State of Hawaii to deal with disasters or emergencies, to maintain the strength, resources, and economic life of the community, and to protect the public health, safety, and welfare; and
WHEREAS, it has become necessary to supplement my Proclamation of April 15, 2018, and my Supplementary Proclamation of April 18, 2018, relating to heavy rains and flooding; and
WHEREAS, the conditions giving rise to the emergency continue in the County of Kaua’i and in the City and County of Honolulu, State of Hawaii.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DAVID Y.

I do hereby continue and extend my Proclamation of April 15, 2018, and my Supplementary Proclamation of April 18, 2018, relating to heavy rains and flooding in order to provide emergency relief. I do hereby further
declare that all the provisions of my Proclamation of April 15, 2018, and my Supplementary Proclamation of April 1 8, 2018, except for the provisions and applicability of section 1 27A-30, Hawaii Revised Statutes, which are no longer in effect, shall remain in full force and effect and are hereby included in the provisions of this Supplementary Proclamation.
All county and state agencies are reminded that the provisions of my Proclamation of April 15, 2018, and my Supplementary Proclamation of April 18, 2018, suspending any state or county law are done so to the extent necessary for county and state agencies to exercise emergency management functions for the speedy and efficient relief of the damages, losses, and suffering resulting from the disaster with the
understanding that all agencies are still required to comply with all applicable federal laws, including but not limited to those associated with funding requirements of the Federal Emergency Management Agency Public Assistance Grant Program and other applicable federal laws.
I FURTHER DECLARE that the disaster emergency relief period shall continue until August 16, 2018, unless terminated by a separate proclamation, whichever shall first occur. Notwithstanding the termination of a disaster emergency relief period, any contracts, agreements, procurements, programs, or employment of personnel entered into, started, amended, or continued by reason of the provisions of the proclamations relating to this emergency shall continue in full force and effect.
