Severe weather in Kauai causes travel problems

Hawaiian Airline flights into and out of Lihue back on schedule

LIHUE, KAUAI (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaiian Airlines canceled multiple flights into and out of Lihue Airport Tuesday night due to severe weather that had Kauai in a Flood Advisory until 2:15 a.m. Wednesday.

The cancellation of three roundtrip flights caused about 200 passengers to be stranded on Kauai.

The three flights, two from Honolulu and one from Maui, took off but were prevented from landing in Lihue because of the thunderstorm.

All three flights were rerouted back to Oahu and Hawaiian Airlines provided hotels to those who did not live on the island.

There are no further flight delays as a result of the weather.

Almost three inches of rain has been recorded in Lihue within the last 24 hours.
