Forest fires in the United States of America, specifically the Hawaiian Islands, have killed at least 36 people, according to US officials.
County officials have reported that the city of Lahaina, the primary tourist destination on the island, experienced the most significant fires, with the flames being intensified by strong winds from Hurricane Dora.
Five evacuation shelters have opened on the island of Maui, with the Maui provincial government announcing in a statement that “with continued firefighting efforts, 36 total deaths have been detected today amid the active Lahaina Fire”.
Several experts attribute the large fires in Hawaii and many regions of the world to the global temperature rise, which has reached about 1.2 degrees Celsius, and temperatures will continue to rise unless governments around the world make sharp cuts in carbon emissions. According to the recommendations of international organizations.
