In Hawaii, there is no easy answer to the state’s ongoing wildfire outbreak.
The state’s Department of Natural Resources is leading the effort to fight wildfires by identifying hotspots that are most likely to flare up, helping people and communities to prepare, and making sure they know how to prepare.
The state’s response has been one of the most aggressive and expensive in the nation.
It’s also been an unprecedented one.
Hawaii has had just seven wildfires since January 2017, the most of any state in the country.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture says Hawaii has the nation’s worst wildfire disaster rate, with 3,500 deaths and 4.3 million acres burned.
Hawaiians also have one of Washington’s highest death tolls in the state, with more than 6,000 people killed since January.
And even though there are now about 5,500 firefighters, the state has been battling its worst wildfire outbreak in years, with almost 10,000 active wildfires and more than 4,000 deaths.
“I think this is a very serious problem, and I think it’s a very long time coming,” said Jeff Giese, a senior scientist at the National Weather Service, who is overseeing the effort.
“There’s a lot of work to be done.
It’s going to take some time to figure it out.”
The most recent outbreak began in January, when more than 2,000 wildfires burned across Hawaii, killing more than 400 people and destroying more than 20,000 homes.
It took nearly six months for the state to declare a state of emergency after officials declared an additional 7,500 acres of public lands as a public health emergency, with the goal of controlling the spread of the fire.
Giese said he expects the state will need to spend an additional $2 billion on wildfire management this year to control the fires.
But Gieses forecast that even if the state does declare a statewide emergency, it will likely be months before that can be completed.
The new state-wide initiative is also aimed at fighting a disease that has devastated Hawaii.
The outbreak has been tied to the West Nile virus, which has also ravaged Hawaii.
In the U.P., the virus can be spread by close contact.
That means, if someone has an infected person or pet, the virus is already out there.
There are currently more than 8,300 West Nile cases in Hawaii, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said.
But Gieser said it’s not clear yet how many of those cases are related to the outbreak.
He also said it could take months to fully control Hawaii’s outbreak.
“We are going to have to continue to do this through the rest of the year, and if it takes us longer than we think it will, then we will,” he said.
Gieste said the new statewide initiative will help Hawaii, which was already under the control of a state-led quarantine program, get a clearer picture of the threat.
“The challenge is not just getting more information out there,” he explained.
“We need to work on the infrastructure and the communications, the training of the state agencies to get that information out.
We have to have the infrastructure in place to keep this thing under control.”
