Federal Grants Will Help Repair Oahu Piers Damaged by Tsunami

Hawaii News Now is reporting that new federal funding for Hawaii will help to repair some of the damage left behind by last year's tsunami. The state will reportedly receive a $1.48 million grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Two broken piers will be fixed at Keehi Small Boat Harbor in Oahu, but other problems, like sunken ships, still remain.

The impact damaged the ends of several docks, the report continues. Nearly a year later, FEMA funds will help to pay for repairs to Piers 700 and 800, which are expected to begin in the next few months.
