Puna Still Struggles as Politicians Parachute In
The rural Big Island community was hit hardest by Tropical Storm Iselle, and now it's the focal point of the race for U.S. Senate.
PUNA, HAWAII — Many residents in this storm-ravaged community have gone days without water and electricity in their homes.
Food in the refrigerators is rotting and medication that must be kept cool, such as insulin, is in danger of going bad.
Ice is in high demand. So are water, juice and other perishable goods that will help get residents by until the power is back on.
Things have been like this here for several days, ever since Tropical Storm Iselle whipped through the forests tearing down trees and anything else in its path.
