Does anyone have any info on new fire in Lahaina? Family there and evacuating due to veg fire and high winds
Yep, friend just sent me a video while he’s stuck on the highway in 40 mph winds with a major black sideways column blowing hard. In the video, leaves and branches are blowing across the roadway. Its wild.
Maui County on their social media reporting 1000 acres… immediate evacuation in progress
Just got another video of multiple power lines down on the highway. Its ugly.
Have family that just got there this afternoon any updates would be appreciated
Allow the palm trees in the photo to be your wind indicators.
Video wouldn’t upload, but heres a pic. Lots of debris flying.
Got ahold of my family, they’re good but were right in it, vehicles around them burning on the road, full ember showers across the road. Yikes
Thought they said Dora was gonna pass “safely” to the south? That aint good at all! T’s & P’s for everyone in that mess…
The high wind warning expires at 6am local time tomorrow
Base all actions on current and expected fire behavior….
I think with the impact to infrastructure I’d be a hard no…. Unless you’re looking to pimp a fireline assignment….
Red flag ends tomorrow at 1800 hrs
High winds suppose to drop off 0600hrs.
Hearing the current conditions from locals and the weather conditions. Probably not.
Replying to whether or not I would fly here tomorrow? It is Bad here. No power, town hammered, traffic Insane. I would cancel. Im with my family sleeping in a rental van, was hit by flying metal roofing, hotel has minimal food, pool closed due to no filtration and falling palms… (not that I could get back to it…). My kids are not Loving Hawaii.
.Lahaina is of fire, Several building on the water have burned.
Search maui county, Maui 24/7 maui on facebook. Prayers for All.
Most evacuees are at the maui high school- no resources there, just a place to park and stay in your car. All they can offer is bottles of water and public restrooms. Quickly running out of parking as well
