Maui Emergency Management Agency Interim Administrator Darryl Oliveira says it’ll be a lengthy process.
“Some of these phases do take time,” Oliveira said. “But we are going to be moving in a forward direction and continue to try to bring closure for the community and allow people to return home.”
Oliveira added the county will bring in structural engineers and building inspectors to asses the stability of some of the remaining structures to “ensure the safety of access for the public.”
EPA crews are still removing toxic waste from the disaster zone.
Officials say that hazmat material will be shipped to the mainland.
