Maui Volunteers Respond to Kihei Flooding

User News Image
Red Cross will meet with the affected residents to ensure immediate needs are met.

Volunteers with the American Red Cross are responding to flood damage reported in Kihei.  Maui Red Cross disaster volunteers will meet with the affected residents to ensure their immediate emergency needs for food, shelter and clothing are met.  Caseworkers will continue to follow up with anyone affected in the coming weeks to provide referrals, guidance or additional assistance as needed to help with the recovery process. 

Maui volunteers will also be canvassing the Kihei area today to assess damage from the heavy rain. 

The Red Cross encourages all families to make a disaster plan to include an evacuation plan with two different routes of escape, a communications plan to help families reconnect after disaster and a disaster supplies kit that is readily available to aid in a quick evacuation.  Information on developing a family plan is available to the public at, or a brochure can be requested by calling 734-2101. 

The Red Cross is not a government agency and depends on public contributions to help others. All Red Cross assistance to disaster victims is free. Your gift supports the lifesaving mission of the American Red Cross in your community, across the country and around the world.  To send a contribution, mail your check to:
