Maui Darby Damage Assessment Forms Available OnlineJuly 25, 2016, 1:05 PM HST · Updated July 25, 1:11 PM 0 Comments
As the County of Maui completes assessment from Tropical Storm Darby, input from the public is being sought to document property damage from the event.
Residents can fill out an online damage assessment form that can be found at www.mauicounty.gov/civildefense. This assessment is not a claim form, and those who file a report will have to fill out separate documents with their insurance carrier.
Also, at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 25, 2016, Mayor Alan Arakawa officially terminated his emergency proclamation issued Friday, July 22, 2016, thus ending the emergency period within Maui County.
While active, the emergency proclamation allowed county departments to react quickly to storm damage and other emergencies by suspending normal county protocol.
“Darby is over and it appears Maui County has dodged another bullet,” said Mayor Arakawa. “I am proud of the way our civil defense and county management handled the storm this weekend and would like to congratulate the public for doing their part and staying out of harm’s way. The roads were clear for most of the weekend and people seemed to be staying indoors and monitoring things from home, which is exactly what they were supposed to be doing.”
“Civil Defense continues to monitor the weather for future storms,” said Emergency Operations Manager Andrea Finkelstein. “As a reminder to the public we are still in the middle of Hurricane Season until November 30, so we all need to stay informed and be prepared.”
More information on the damage assessment forms can be obtained by calling the Maui Civil Defense Agency at 270-7285.
