Displaced Palolo Valley Residents Press City To Settle Over Damaged Homes 12 A forgotten group of homeowners on Kuahea Street and Kuahea Place want the same resolution as other former residents of the Waiomao neighborhood ravaged by landslides.

It was Marjory Kawahara’s first time home since December 2020. The 85-year-old retired Kaiser Permanente nurse carefully walked down the steps of her house on Kuahea Street in Palolo Valley, where she’d lived for almost 60 years.

She stood on the front patio, where she and her late husband, a Korean War Army veteran and state agricultural inspector, once hosted countless family gatherings. But she didn’t want to go inside.

“I didn’t want to see what it looked like now,” Kawahara said, adding that she was concerned for her safety.
