Hawaii Governor David Ige declared a state of emergency on Friday amidst an outbreak of dengue fever.
DAILY NEWS New York News Politics Sports Entertainment Opinion Living Autos Search U.S. The move will help the state speed up the process of building a homeless shelter for families, and the state is considering four possible sites, Ige said at a news conference Friday. Hawaii saw a 23 percent increase in its unsheltered homeless population between 2014 and 2015, and a 46 percent increase in the number of unsheltered families, said Scott Morishige, state homelessness coordinator.
There were 7,260 homeless people in Hawaii at the latest count, meaning Hawaii has the highest rate of homelessness per-capita of any state in the nation. The state has identified $1.3 million to expand services to homeless individuals and families, Morishige said. The new transitional shelter the state is envisioning would house about 15 families at a time, Morishige said.
The recent clearing of the Kakaako homeless encampment could be used as a model in other parts of the state, Ige said.
Meanwhile on Friday, crews were installing converted shipping containers for Honolulua€™s latest homeless shelter on a gravel lot on Sand Island. The rooms, which were made from new shipping containers, each have a window and a screen door for ventilation.


The coating and insulation keep the units about 30 degrees cooler than they would otherwise be, Wozniak said.
A trailer on-site holds five bathrooms that each have a toilet and shower, and therea€™s a separate portable toilet and shower that are accessible to the disabled.
The outbreak is the largest in the state since the 1940s, Reuters reported, citing Hawaii County Mayor Billy Kenoi and Hawaii health officials. Hawaii’s governor said he would not issue a statewide emergency declaration until the outbreak spread to other islands or grew to include other diseases, such as the Zika virus, according to Reuters. Dengue fever, which is spread by mosquitos, has symptoms that include high fever, severe headache, joint pain, rashes and mild bleeding, the CDC reported.
According to the Associated Press, there have been more than 250 confirmed cases on Hawaii’s Big Island. Science Says You’re Showering Too Much, So Turn That Water Off And Go Jump In Some Mud, Will Ya?
David Ige has declared a state of emergency to deal with the statea€™s homelessness crisis just days after city and state officials cleared one of the nationa€™s largest homeless encampments. In addition to a new shelter, the money also would go to the statea€™s Housing First program, which provides homes and services to chronically homeless individuals without requiring them to get sober or treat mental illness first, and programs that help families pay deposits and rent. Two of the sites under consideration are in Kakaako, the neighborhood where the large homeless encampment was cleared, and the other sites are in Liliha and near Sand Island.


By coordinating with service providers, more than half of the estimated 300 residents of the encampment, including 25 families, were moved into shelters and permanent housing, the governor said. The structures are insulated, and the roofs have white reflective coating, and an awning will provide shade for relaxing outside, said Russ Wozniak, an architect and engineer from Group 70, an architecture firm. When completed in December, the shelter in an industrial part of Honolulu will temporarily house up to 87 clients at a time.
