What Is Hawaiian Electric’s power lines allegedly causing deadly Maui wildfires?
Three law firms filed a class action lawsuit against Hawaiian Electric following deadly wildfires in Maui, Hawaii, last week that are confirmed to have killed at least 96 people.
The class action lawsuit claims Hawaiian Electric chose not to de-energize its power lines, which were downed by high winds on the island and may have sparked the fires. The deadly wildfires occurred in Maui, Hawaii.
What Is This Class Action All About?
Downed Hawaiian Electric power lines may have caused the deadly wildfires in Maui, Hawaii, last week, a new class action lawsuit alleges.
The lawsuit claims Hawaiian Electric decided not to de-energize its power lines during a high wind watch and red flag warning for wind conditions on Maui prior to the fires, which tore through the area of Lahaina, CNN reports.
The utility is alleged to have known its power lines could potentially spark a fire under the wind conditions yet chose to not de-energize the poles even after learning some of them had fallen to the ground, according to CNN.
Hawaiian Electric, which says it provides power to 95% of Hawaii’s residents, does not have a formal shut-off program in place, according to Vice President Joe Kelly, who told CNN on Sunday it will work with the state and county on their review of the incident.
“Our immediate focus is on supporting emergency response efforts on Maui and restoring power for our customers and communities as quickly as possible,” Kelly told CNN.
