As recovery efforts persist, many residents grapple with unstable power and spotty cellphone coverage. Some have resorted to seeking stronger phone signals by the seawall, while others rely on a low-flying single-prop plane broadcasting crucial information regarding aid locations.

As of now, Maui County has publicly identified two victims and is in the process of notifying the families of three additional identified individuals before releasing their names.
