Maui mayor asks for storm help

Mayor Charmaine Tavares said Maui needs help from state and federal officials because of heavy damage from wind and heavy rains.

Tavares said yesterday she did not have any estimates but has directed her department heads to gather information to prepare a request to the state and Federal Emergency Management Agency.

"This is not just a passing little rain shower," Tavares said. "This is a storm. I can tell you, I've lived here for 50-plus years ... and I've never seen a storm hit so many places at once."
