Tourism authorities say Hawaii is open for business one week after Hurricane Lane pummelled the islands.
US authorities downgraded Hurricane Lane from a Category 5 hurricane to a tropical storm as it passed by the Hawaiian islands last week.
The storm caused heavy rainfall and localised flooding.
Hawaii tourism says all airports, resorts, activities, beaches and roads are now open.
“To be clear, the State of Hawaii is fully open for business and travellers should not be dissuaded at all from making or planning trips to our beautiful island home,” George D. Szigeti the president of Hawaii Tourism says.
“The weather is beautiful today, sunny, warm and inviting, exactly what everyone expects when being in the Hawaiian Islands.”
The rainfall from Hurrican Lane has made some of Hawaii’s natural attractions even more spectacular. KSNV news filed the Wailua Falls on the island of Kauai this week. The vision, below, is spectacular. It’s also expected to generate impressive surf.

Travel allows you to get outside your bubble. It makes you realise there are other ways to do things, and that’s OK. Plus, I am a huge fan of skiing and for the best powder – you need to head overseas.
