Deed Disaster Relief: Maui
How companies can help the victims of the United States' deadliest wildfire in over a century.
Last week, a series of wildfires devastated the Hawaiian island of Maui, leaving at least 96 dead and 1,300 missing in the town of Lāhainā. This is the deadliest wildfire to strike the United States since 1918, and experts predict reconstruction will cost no less than $5.52 billion.
As of Sunday, only 85 percent of the fire had been contained, in part because critical infrastructure including water, electric, and communications failed as the fire escalated, according to The Maui News, slowing and stalling a recovery effort that is sure to last years.
“It’s going to take a great deal of time to recover from this, but we have the support from every level of government all the way up to the federal level,” said Hawai’i Governor Josh Green. “It will be a tremendous effort, but we will come together as a community and begin working toward rebuilding from this tragedy.”
