The devastating wildfires on the Hawaiian island of Maui earlier this month continue to cause misery for the island’s residents.
As of Monday morning, more than 1,200 formerly missing people have been located, with about 850 still missing, the county mayor said. So far there are 114 confirmed deaths, many of the bodies still unidentified, with the figure expected to rise. President Joe Biden will visit the island Monday to survey the damage.
Pope Francis has expressed his sadness and solidarity with all who are suffering due to the destruction caused by the wildfires, which have destroyed hundreds of buildings.
