Nu’uanu Stream – Honolulu HI

Description

“The lava rock walls that lined Nu’uanu Stream were part of a WPA funded flood control project (1937). Flood control assumed a high priority in Honolulu after a February 27, 1935 storm dumped 14.23 inches of rain in Nu’uanu Dowsett in 15 hours, flooding Chinatown’s River Street and killing nine people.”
