"No ferry boat, or modern bridge, what do you expect..?" 'James "Kimo" Rosen'

"This past week Kaua'i  suffered extreme flood damage, many residents needed the help of the Red cross, many others were stranded on the north shore of Kaua'i in a land called Hanalei..."

An island community, a rock in the middle of the Pacific decides they do not want a ferry boat or a modern day bridge, what do you expect?

Fast forward to the current Garden island floods with visitors and locals stranded  in Hanalei with no way to escape.The Hanalei bridge is flooded, helicopters are not flying, cars are stranded and the bus has cancelled service, even walking and bicycling are out.  

How about a boat?  Now that's an unique idea for an island.... 

Just imagine if the Super-ferry had not been scared away, I am betting they would be shuttling passenger from Hanalei to Nawiliwili and points between.

I still cannot get over an island in the middle of the Pacific that declines ferry service and a modern day bridge, being stuck could easily had be avoided, after-all it's not rocket science, just common sense.
