The death toll from last month’shas dropped from at least 115 to 97 people, Hawaii Gov. Josh Green announced Friday.
In a video posted to social media Friday afternoon, Green said that the “number dropped a little bit because the Department of Defense and all of their physical anthropologists were able to help us discern better who was in cars or in houses.”
He did not immediately elaborate on why the death toll had been projected by Maui County officials at 115 for several weeks.
