As the communication services have failed in the province due to the wind-fueled wildfire, the fire department is struggling to coordinate evacuations. Lieutenant Gov. Sylvia Luke said, “Maui County has not been able to communicate with residents on the west side, the Lahaina side. 911 is down. Cell service is down. The phone service is down.
