We continue to track the wildfire disaster in Maui, with special attention to emergency communications.

The following report from Hawaii ARES provides an excellent overview of what repeaters are working, as well as social media sites providing updates.  We’re unaware of any live feeds at this time.

We do have AmRRON members in Hawaii, but thus far have had no contact from them.  They’re likely focused on the local situation, as they should be.
