Devastating Wildfires in Maui County Displace Local-Born Residents, Mayor Victorino Commits to Helping Those Affected

Maui County has reported 19 structures destroyed in the wildfires that broke out last Tuesday, with 93 people dead and others still missing. Richy Palalay, a lifelong resident of Lahaina, is concerned that the influx of second-home buyers and wealthy transplants is displacing local-born residents who can no longer afford to live in their homeland. The county is offering assistance to those who have lost their homes, as well as working with the state and Red Cross to provide food, water, and other supplies to those affected.
