The fires worsening Maui’s housing crisis

The deadliest U.S. wildfires in over a century are burning in Hawai’i. The historic town of Lahaina almost “burnt to the ground” with more loss of life expected as recovery efforts continue on the ground. In today’s deep dive, we discuss what led to this disaster and what its fallout could mean for a pre-existing housing shortage on the island.
