We were stationed in Hawaii when I was a kid. Soon after we arrived at Hickam AFB, there were warnings of flooding. Mother to Father: "We're on an island. Where do we go if it floods?"

You farks won't care about our plight, will you?
I knew we should have named our town Haiku.

I wish them nothing but luck. I did the drive to Hana a few years ago and some of those mountain roads are dicey in good weather. Add in rain and flooding waterfalls; I don't really want to imagine having to do it while trying to evacuate.

Yes, little known fact, but the mountain rains in Haiku are the origin point for the Pacific Ocean.
It was just a big crater created from a meteor strike ( fun fact - killed all the dinosaurs!) that filled with mountain rainwater before the locals built the dam.
Probably saved Australia and Japan with its construction.
Don't look good for them now, though.

Didn't your parents ever read the Bible?

You'd have thunk the USAF would have developed planes that can fly around for 40 days and 40 nights by now.

It's really gnarly weather here. I'm in Haiku and the storm we are going through is the worst I have seen since moving here in '93. The water coming down the driveway has pooled around the house, and has invaded the foundation, leaking into my apartment an inch deep on the floor. All electric wires have been either elevated or unplugged. I keep sopping up the water with towels, wringing them out into a bucket and starting again. It's been a long night. Roads are closed and we are cut off, as bridges are out, also. If there's a fire or other serious emergency, we're screwed.

Trouble in paradise, I see.

A proper Haiku should mention nature as well, so +1 to that perfect 10 headline.

Better Haiku versus a final 'Aloha'...
