The town of Lahaina on the Maui Island has been destroyed by a fire that occurred on August 8. Approximately 2,700 structures were lost, with 86% of them being residential.
Many people died that day, but the exact amount remains unknown.
Etina shares with us the moment she knew she had to evacuate and how she was able to make it to the ocean where the struggle for survival continued.
Strong tides and smoke from the fire made it extremely difficult for her to stay alive, but Etina is one of the lucky survivors who made it out alive that day!
