Around 2,200 structures have been destroyed or damaged as a result of the fires in Maui, Hawaii Governor Josh Green said in a news conference Saturday.
"If you look at what's been seen now in West Maui, 2,200 structures have been destroyed or damaged. Eighty-six percent are residential," Green said.
"The losses approach $6 billion in estimate,” the governor added.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency earlier on Saturday disputed a $5.52 billion damage assessment figure that was previously attributed to the Pacific Disaster Center and FEMA, calling it inaccurate and saying it was premature to assign even an approximate dollar amount to the damage done on Maui.
