KONA, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - It's been about a month and a half since the last tsunami swept through Kona. One of the hardest hit areas was Na Po'o Po'o. Some residents are cleaning up and trying to rebuild. On Ali'i Drive several businesses received extensive damage. One of them was Sunset Traders, in business for nearly three decades, owner Ed Brunner said he'd never seen anything like this. Malika visited the area and brings us an update.
