The fires worsening Maui’s housing crisis

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.
