In Hawaii, a new lawsuit brought by Maui County officials blames Hawaii’s largest electric utility for wildfires that killed at least 115 people earlier this month. Three hundred eighty-eight people remain unaccounted for. The lawsuit accuses the Hawaiian Electric power company of failing to respond to red flag warnings on the day of the fires and allowing live wires to come into contact with dry vegetation.
