At least 55 people have been killed and a historic town has been wiped out by wildfires on Maui, Hawaii. Emergency management records show that no warning sirens sounded before the fires, likely due to power and cellular outages. Instead, alerts were sent to mobile phones, televisions, and radio stations. Many survivors said they didn't receive a warning and only realized they were in danger when they saw flames or heard explosions nearby. The wildfires, fueled by dry weather and strong winds, are the state's deadliest natural disaster since a 1960 tsunami. Search and rescue operations are ongoing, and the Death Toll is expected to rise.
