Kaniau Road in Zone 1C will be the first area to be cleared for reentry next week. “The process to clear each zone for reentry is a complex one to ensure we do all we can to maximize public safety and wellbeing as residents access a disaster area that contains hazardous conditions,” said Darryl Oliveira, interim administrator for the County of Maui Emergency Management Agency. With 17 primary zones and 83 sub-zones established for the 2,170 acres in the five-mile Lahaina impact area, a systemized process of safety reviews must be completed before reentry access for residential areas is established.
