Disaster Assistance and Recovery Centers planned for Upcountry and Kihei this weekend

Mayor Michael Victorino announced today that the Maui Emergency Management Agency will host two Disaster Assistance and Recovery Center events this weekend for residents still coping with impacts from the recent Kona Low weather system. 

The Upcountry event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 11, at the Mayor Hannibal Tavares Community Center in Pukalani. Bottled water and boxes of non-perishable food will still be available at the Tavares Center for those in need. The Kihei event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12, at the Kihei Community Center.

“We are happy to announce that water service has been restored to virtually everyone, and Hawaiian Electric has completed restoration of power service to all areas, with the exception of a single outage that repair crews are responding to in a remote area,” Mayor Victorino said. “Now, we are moving on to the damage assessment and recovery phase. It’s important for anyone who has property damage to take photos. This will clearly document damage and help Maui County seek federal money for damage assistance.”

The Disaster Assistance and Recovery Centers will help residents to document and file reports of storm-related damages. Residents with internet access may still report storm-related damage online at mauicounty.gov

Damage reports will be aggregated for the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency to determine if the state of Hawaii warrants a Presidential Emergency Declaration. Such a declaration is needed for local governments and individuals to receive financial assistance after a natural disaster. For more information, call the Maui Emergency Management Agency at 808-270-7285.
