  • The recent Maui wildfire in Hawaii has resulted in a devastating death toll, with 93 people killed. This makes it the deadliest wildfire in the United States in over a century. Hawaii Governor Josh Greene, accompanied by FEMA head Deanne Criswell, surveyed the damage and issued a warning that the number of casualties is expected to rise. The search for bodies is ongoing, but it is a challenging and time-consuming process. Governor Greene emphasized the need for caution, as there are heavy metals and toxic substances present in the debris of collapsed houses and businesses. There is a risk of further structural collapses, posing a danger to search and rescue teams. The Maui Chief of Police reported that only 3 percent of the burned area has been searched so far, but the pace is expected to accelerate with additional assistance. Amidst the tragic loss of life, stories of survival and trauma have emerged. One family managed to escape the flames by seeking refuge in the ocean for five hours. However, the survivors express the deep pain of being unable to save others. The speed at which the fire spread made it impossible to rescue individuals in time. Efforts are being made to provide shelter for the approximately 4,500 people who have been displaced. Currently, 500 hotel rooms have been secured for this purpose. Meanwhile, heavy rains have caused problems in China, particularly in the western regions where a mudslide and flash flood claimed the lives of at least 21 people. Infrastructure, including a highway, was severely damaged, and power outages occurred. Search and rescue teams are actively searching for six individuals reported missing. In Ukraine, Russian shelling in the southern region of Kerchan resulted in the deaths of seven people today.
