The death count is “rising,” Maui County Police Chief said in the news conference Thursday afternoon, adding that he does not know what the final number might be. “It’s going to be horrible and tragic when we get that number,” he said. “Authorities do not know how many people remain missing,” Maui county fire chief Bradford Ventura said in response to a question at the press conference. “There’s no power. There’s no internet. There’s no radio coverage,” he said. “It may take weeks to months to get power back up in some of the affected places,” Gov. Josh Green said. Power poles, he said, had been incinerated. More than 10,000 customers remained without power in Maui County by Thursday evening with no internet or connection to the outside world. It’s a devastating situation.
