Media Accused of Downplaying Maui Fire Death Toll as Morgues Run Out of Body Bags

Maui authorities and the media appear to be downplaying the true death toll from the devastating Muai fire after locals claim at least 480 are dead and the “morgues had run out of body bags.”

“The figure is quadruple that of the official number of 111 – and some of the relatives of the victims have been left to uncover the remains of their loved ones themselves due to the glacial progress of the search and recovery operation.”

Biden has continued his heartless indifference over Maui with “no comment” after reports recovered charred remains of ‘entire families.’

A videos and images obtained by the Daily Mail shows authorities loading bodies into refrigerated trucks as morgues have run out of room.

Maui resident Allison Medina, who has been helping the victims of the Lahaina, revealed how bad it really is.

“People have been doing their own recovery,” Medina told the Daily Mail.

“I know there are at least 480 dead here in Maui, and I don’t understand why they’re [the authorities] not saying that. Maybe it’s to do with DNA or something.”

“I do know they ran out of body bags by the first or second night and had to ship some in from the mainland,” she said referring to the morgues in Maui.

“Allison says the slow recovery process has led to family members being left to find the charred corpses of their loved ones themselves, including a friend of hers who lost four family members.”

The massive loss of life is mainly due to the slow emergency response from both federal and state governments.

As the Daily Fetched reported earlier this week, Hawaiian Electric, the utility company whose power line played a role in the Hawaiian fires in Maui, was too focused on combatting climate change to prepare for the safety of its existing infrastructure.

According to the WSJ, the company said it needed to take more action to ensure that its hardware did not emit sparks after the 2019 wildfire season, which was one of the worst in Maui’s history.

However, the firm did not appear to have done much work before one of its power lines sparked the fires, which killed at least 100 people.

Instead, the firm expended significant resources toward green energy initiatives to fight climate change.

According to a report from the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, the official request made to divert the water was ignored for several hours by Deputy Director M. Kaleo Manuel (an Obama Foundation fellow)of the Hawaii Commission on Water Resource Management (CWRM).

To make things worse, Herman Andaya, Maui’s emergency operations chief, has no conventional background in disaster response.

Joe gave the dog whistle on the Maui fire. “No comment.” And the media gets in line.
