Clearing operations can take up to 10 days to count the full death toll

Maui’s governor said rescue crews sorting through charred homes and vehicles in Hawaii find 10 to 20 victims each day.

The death toll has reached 96 and is likely to rise, making it the deadliest wildfire in US history in more than a century.

Gov. Josh Green told CBS that it could take up to 10 days to calculate the full death toll, adding that the fire has destroyed the entire city of Lahaina.

“There is nothing to see but destruction,” Green told CBS, the BBC’s US news partner, on Sunday.
