When a plane crashes, who gets to pick up the pieces
Updated February 14, 2018 12:30:47 A plane crashed Thursday in Maui that killed all 14 people on board, killing at least two people and sending the Pacific Ocean into a storm surge.
A massive, slow-moving storm was sweeping Maui and parts of Hawaii, forcing the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration to scramble its planes, warning of more severe weather.
The plane was on its way to Honolulu when it crashed, and authorities believe it hit the island of Kauai in the Pacific.
The National Transportation Safety Board says the plane was carrying 12 passengers and two crew members.
Authorities are trying to determine what caused the crash.
The NTSB says it will investigate and will determine the cause of the crash and how much damage it caused.
A statement released by the NTSB said the plane “failed to maintain normal operating conditions due to the extreme heat and humidity conditions.”
“The plane’s engine and fuel tanks failed due to extremely low engine temperature,” the statement said.
The NTSB said a total of 14 people were aboard.
One person died and nine others were hospitalized.
A witness told Hawaii News Now she was in the cockpit when the plane hit the seawall and then went into a “slip and slide.”
The NTSI said the airplane’s engines failed due “extreme heat and a combination of humidity, low engine temperatures and a failure to maintain engine operation.”
The plane then went off course and hit the water.
The flight plan was canceled and it was unclear how long it took to land.
NTSB Chairman Thomas Perez said the flight’s “inherent failure to follow safe flight procedures” was a “major safety concern.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said the jet’s wings “failed at a high rate of speed and broke off from the fuselage.
The aircraft’s engines then broke off and the aircraft was swept up in the ocean.”
“A large section of the wing was lost during the impact and impacted the seawater,” NOAA said.
It said the wing broke off about 10 feet from the centerline of the plane.
A pilot aboard the plane died at the scene and six others were taken to the hospital.
There were no immediate details on the cause or passengers.
David Ige issued a statement saying, “The families of the victims have been notified and I ask that they come to the nearest hospital to receive their loved ones.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people who were injured.”
Maui Mayor Todd Hoekstra released a statement Thursday saying, in part, “the tragedy is deeply tragic and I pray for the families and their loved one.
We will continue to work with the authorities to gather as much information as possible to help prevent future tragedies.”
Hawaii Gov.-elect John Kavanagh issued a tweet saying, “”The plane hit a seawall with an extremely high water temperature and a low engine load.
We are in mourning.
We want to offer our support to the families.
“We have not released any information regarding the specific condition of the airplane and any injuries.” “
As the investigation continues, we will release additional information as we receive it,” the department said.
“We have not released any information regarding the specific condition of the airplane and any injuries.”
The FAA said it is working with the NTSC to ensure safety for the people and property on the ground.
The airline was flying from Honolulu to Honolulu International Airport.
It is unclear if any passengers or crew were injured.
Hawaii Emergency Management said it has activated two evacuation centers, one at the Kahului International Airport and the other at Kahulua.
The first center was opened at 1 p.m. and the second at 1:45 p.k.
It did not say when the other centers would open.
“Stay safe and secure.
Please check your air conditioner and check in at the nearest emergency response center,” Hawaii Emergency Operations Center spokeswoman Debby Martin said in an email.
“In a crisis, be prepared to get out of your vehicle.
And, if you’re in a situation where you need assistance, please call 911 or your local emergency agency.”
Hawaii has been hit by several hurricanes in the past year.
The U.N. agency said Wednesday that it has recorded nearly 2,700 deaths in the state.
In September, the governor of Hawaii said a record number of people had been killed in the last five days, and he urged people to stay away from beaches, especially those in the Kaena Valley.
The governor said the number of deaths had climbed to 6,848, with an average of about 7.5 people per day.
Hawaii is the fifth-largest state in the U, according to the U (Reuters/Mike Blake) Hawaii is a tourist destination, but it has had several major storms in recent years.
A series of hurricanes struck Hawaii in September and October and killed at least 15 people.
More than 600 people were injured in those storms. In
