County of Maui Issues Statement on Incident at Kalana O Maui This Morning
Shortly before 9:30 this morning, the Mayor’s office received a troubling call that triggered notification to the Maui Police Department. Under the direction of MPD, employees and members of the public at Kalana O Maui, the County Building, and adjacent buildings were immediately and safely evacuated. Following MPD’s investigation, employees and the public were allowed to re-enter all buildings at 11:00 a.m. It is unfortunate that critical resources such as emergency responders are diverted from other emergency calls so that they can respond to threats such as this, however we take all threats seriously and are grateful that everyone is safe. The incident remains under investigation.
