In a recent statement, Hawaii Gov. Josh Green emphasized the need for a moratorium on land transactions in the Lahaina area, an act that he believes will protect residents from potential exploitation during this difficult time. Gov. Green expressed concern about individuals, unrelated to the real estate industry, inquiring about purchasing land from those affected by the disaster.

Safeguarding the well-being of the community is his utmost priority. He stressed that it is crucial to avoid approaching traumatized individuals with offers to buy their land or exploiting their vulnerability by suggesting they would be better off with a deal. Gov. Green made it clear that such actions will not be allowed.

Furthermore, he announced that State Attorney General Anne Lopez has been instructed to collaborate on implementing this moratorium, and additional information will be provided by Friday. Gov. Green also expressed his desire to establish a long-term moratorium on land purchases by individuals who are not residents of Maui.

Update on Wildfire Devastation

During a recent news conference, Gov. Green also addressed the devastating impact of the wildfires and shared important updates. The death toll has tragically risen by four, reaching a total of 110 casualties. Additionally, he revealed that search efforts have covered approximately 38% of the disaster area so far.

Expressing deep sorrow, Gov. Green acknowledged the heartbreak experienced by the community in light of these losses.

Power Outages and Support

In an effort to provide essential services to affected individuals, Gov. Green highlighted that around 2,000 homes and businesses in the area remain without electricity. He assured these residents that they would be eligible for assistance if they are suffering due to the power outage.

The priority remains on restoring normalcy for those impacted by these distressing circumstances, and ongoing efforts are being made to alleviate their hardship.
