New Legislation from the Kualoan Assembly

 

24/8/2017: After many closed-door meetings at the capitol, the Assembly Delegation has released its newest legislation, which effectively establishes a new national park south of Waipahu. The park, called Waihatiki park, was established due to the concern of many environmentalists and citizens alike on the impact of Waipahu's increasing urbanization. The park effectively eliminates the proposal from Waipahu's city council to deforest the lush forest area south of the city to create new housing and city blocks.

 

"This is a landmark event for all citizens of Kualoa," said Nalia Aikani, a delegate in the Assembly. "We have shown today that we can strike a balance of furthering urbanization while protecting our nation's natural beauty. This sets a precedent for all urban expansions in Kualoa."

 

A flock of citizens gathered around the capitol building in Waipahu to celebrate the legislation, though we noticed a distinct lack of city officials joining in the celebrations.

New State Infrastructure Plan

 

8/26/2017: Today, the Assembly Delegation's spokesperson, Oki Romana, released a statement regarding the infrastructure of Kualoa. It has been an ongoing problem in Kualoa, as many more rural areas rely on dirt roads, which are prone to damage. The statement reads:

 

"Good afternoon, friends and citizens of Kualoa! I am here on behalf of the Assembly Delegation of the Capitol. Today, the Delegation had thorough discussions about the state infrastructure, and ways to go about fixing it. Here in Waipahu we may not worry about this, as we have a stable roadway system, but it is a problem that many rural Kualoans deal with on a daily basis, having to travel to attend work, or to return home, only on dirt roads and paths. The Delegation has decided that these are not acceptable conditions for a Kualoan to live in, so they have released a new plan: The Rural Revitalization Act, or RRA. The plan calls upon all different provinces of Kualoa to hire construction companies to create new, concrete or tar roads, and repair current ones. The delegation is especially excited about this plan as not only does it create improved infrastructure for Kualoans, it also creates new jobs in the construction industry. All private companies contracted to build will be paid by the province which hires them. We are very excited to see this plan come to fruition! Thank you."

Aftermath of Aletta

 

7/9/2017: First responders and volunteers alike are taking a deep sigh of relief after working almost non-stop for the past week. We are glad to announce that residents of Rotuma are safe from the the destruction of Hurricane Aletta. Many have lost their homes, businesses, and even some have lost family. All who have lost their homes have been provided shelter by local and state government, and many have taken shelter in friendly Kualoans' homes.

 

 

With all this, the Delegation released a statement today. It reads:

 

"We are in infinite debt to all those from Kualoa and abroad who have sacrifice their time and money to help those in need in Rotuma. It has been incredible to see how many people have offered to help in a time of crisis. We would also like to thank all Kualoan first responders and volunteers who helped to save those in emergency situations. Their courage and bravery is truly the world benchmark. And to all Rotuman citizens who are still in need of food and shelter, visit your nearest government-run shelter to find a spot for you and your family, along with food. We extend an invitation to all Kualoans, as well as our foreign friends to join us in celebration today of all volunteers, first responders, and anyone who risked their life to save others. We can rejoice today, as our country grows stronger, even in crisis!"

OOC: @Orioni (re-confirming) and @Sunset Sea Islands have allowed me to conduct funeral duties, e.g. honorably discharge Kualoa (who has left us) by supertyphoon. Time travel, as usual. Refer to the SUMATRA thread.

EVACUATION PROCEDURES PROGRESSING

10/28/17: Since the typhoon warning was announced on October 26, the government and several humanitarian organizations have begun evacuation of the entire Kualoan nation. Disaster management authorities have already been working nonstop to construct more shelters, while the police and military have been deployed to ensure peace and order.

Nearly all major roads leading to higher ground are already clogged with terrible traffic. The government is taking no action as of now because it is handling too many problems already.

Port and airport authorities all across Kualoa have halted all operations to prepare for the emergency docking of ships and grounding of aircraft. In many major airports, aircraft are being brought into maintenance areas to make space for more aircraft. Emergency berths have been built around most Kualoan ports already.

As Typhoon Hapai nears the nation, the entire Kualoan people stand side by side with arms linked, ready to work together and fight against a common enemy!
