Heartbreaking images show devastation of Hawaii wildfires

At least 36 people have been killed in the wildfires that have scorched parts of Hawaii. The island of Maui has been hit incredibly hard, especially in the town of Lahaina. Helicopter video showed the charred remains of the coastal town. Evacuations have been ordered, and shelters have been established. The windy weather that drove the blazes was caused by a combination of a high-pressure system north of the islands and Hurricane Dora to the south. That windy weather is expected to slowly decrease Thursday as strong high pressure to the north will continue to weaken and move westward.

The Northeast has been hit hard by rain this summer, and that waterlogged pattern continues over the next several days as three storms are in the forecast for the region. The first arrives Thursday, with the next one hot on its heels.
