On Saturday, Red Cross volunteers assessed the damages brought by the wind storm on Hawaii County, Maui County and Oahu.  On Hawaii County, volunteers met with two families whose homes were destroyed in Pahoa and Mountain View and provided them with financial assistance for their immediate emergency needs of food, shelter and clothing.  On Maui County, volunteers identified two homes that appear to have sustained damaged but are currently inaccessible.  On Oahu, volunteers identified two homes for follow-up assistance.

On Friday night, Big Island Red Cross volunteers opened a shelter at Aunty Sally Kaleohano’s Luau Hale in Hilo for residents affected by the high winds.  The shelter closed later that evening and there were no evacuees.
