Maui Fire Survivor:police blockades, missing children, FEMA failure & bodies still being found #maui

This video is based on a survivors first-hand experience in the Maui fire. We discuss roadblocks by the police, the missing children, theme is incompetency, and what the future looks like for the people. The Venmo QR code in the video belongs to the victim. Please feel free to send her something.



  1. This woman is brave to tell her horrific story. Prayers for her and her family. Samanta, you’re doing a great job! You are our connection to Maui and the secrets that remain.

  2. May The Lord Bless Her and Return Seven Times Over What She Lost. Heart Broken For Her You Can Tell How Upset She Is😢

    1. Let the facts show what happened first,don’t rush in with worry, untruthful blame..there’s always a way home..God Bless All of you and guide you throughout these rough and overwhelming trying times of insecurity 😘

  3. My heart is just broken for this sweet soul Iris. I just feel in my soul this was done on purpose. These horrible elites felt like “who do these people think they are that the land, this wealthy, pristine beautiful land should belong to them“ that’s what my spirit is telling me they all conspired and were saying so they just decided to take it from them as if these people were nothing! I am so sickened by the evil in this world …it just feels so heavy and so sad and it’s so wrong. It’s just so wrong and so unfair.

  4. The facts we know from survivors telling their stories:
    1. NO sirens were ever sounded. There were NO text messages, no warnings, nothing.
    2. The police blocked or barricaded ALL exits and escape routes. Every single one of them!
    3. The water was cut off to the fire fighters.
    4. The body count has been frozen at 115.
    5. The local morgues ran OUT of body bags on the second day. The local morgue has been full for a month. AND a second temporary morgue has been set up at the police station. BUT HEY … the official count is STILL 115.
    6. Medical personnel have been telling stories of pulling entire families from cars that were trapped in a traffic jam. Maybe if the police HAD NOT blocked the streets they might have made it out.
    7. There are 15 school buses missing and unaccounted for.
    8. There are anywhere from 1000 to 2000 children missing and unaccounted for.
    9. It took FEMA six days to show up. When they did, the first thing they did was confiscate all food/water being given to survivors because “it wasn’t FEMA approved.” The water FEMA has been giving survivors is reported to be making them sick. You can’t make this stuff up.
    10. Survivors are being evicted!
    11. A black curtain has been put up around the city, blocking all view inside the city.
    12. No media is allowed into the city, no survivors are allowed in.
    13. The EPA is removing toxic waste in 55 gallon blue drums. Since when has a wild fire been classified as toxic waste????
    14. A church group has been given permission to shift the ashes for valuables. No survivors can shift ashes, but this church group has been given special permission. Again, since when is a fire like this classified as TOXIC WASTE hazard????
    15. The police chief is both the police chief AND the medical examiner. Conflict of interest. OH YEAH. Big Time.
    16. This is also the SAME police chief responsible for the infamous Vegas mass shooting that, if you actually LOOK at it, leaves more questions unanswered than answered. BUT HEY … if you just take the officials at face value and “trust the process” it’s all good. Just go back to watching your Netflix and don’t worry about a thing. No need to question anything. Don’t worry about facts or truth or holding anyone accountable. At least that’s how the city officials feel. And that’s how they act.
    17. The EPA is planning on spraying a sealing coat on top of the ashes once they finish removing all the toxic stuff. Once again, since when is a fire like this deemed toxic waste??? The kicker here is this … once this stuff is sprayed and coated, YOU CANNOT DIG IT UP. Let me say that again in case you missed it. The EPA is going to spray the ashes and once they do so (this could be MONTHS from now), you cannot dig it up. HOW are survivors going to rebuild if they cannot dig up the ashes??????
    18. What about survivors who want to go back to THEIR property and search for valuables and anything else? WELL … they’re blocked out. They cannot go back to THEIR OWN PROPERTY. It’s been deemed “too dangerous.” Dangerous? Seriously? You can’t make this stuff up.
    19. Hawaii Electric is both removing all evidence in regards to downed power lines AND they’re changing their story. Now they say the power was SHUT OFF six hours prior to the fire starting. Their story is so convoluted and it keeps changing to the point that I am not seriously following it. I just assume that whatever they say is a lie.
    20. During the first press conference, the police chief made two things clear: ONE: NO ROAD BLOCKS were ever set up. TWO, their main enemy is social media. After survivors’ stories started to come out that the roads WERE BLOCKED, the police chief changed his story to “OH! We only blocked SOME of the roads that had downed power lines.” OK … since when is blocking roads during a fire emergency a good idea? And I KNOW the police have the power to contact the electric company to have power to lines SHUT OFF. Their main enemy is STILL social media (MSM is ignoring Maui). Social media is the ONLY WAY the truth is coming out.

    Let’s be very, very, very clear here on this one point: MULTIPLE SURVIVORS have stated that ALL the exits were either blocked or barricaded and that the traffic jams were HOURS LONG as in EIGHT HOURS LONG or more. People report seeing cars NOT MOVING all day. OH, one more thing, traffic was being redirected BACK into the city, back into the fire zone. YES, the police redirected traffic BACK into the fire areas.

    HONESTLY, at this point the survivors need to SUE the city and the city officials for gross negligence leading to wholesale manslaughter of the very people they swore to protect. It’s either gross negligence and incompetence or else it’s homicidal planning.

    The death count is likely closer to 1500 to 3000. They are really scrambling the numbers and delaying giving out ANY information to keep these numbers artificially low at 115.

    The big question is WHERE are the missing 1000 to 2000 children? This comes from school rosters showing 3000 kids registered. Depending on your source, anywhere from 1000 to 2000 children have been accounted for. This still leaves anywhere from 1000 to 2000 children NOT ACCOUNTED FOR. They’re not even in the death count. So where are they? Oddly enough, there is NO WORD from the city officials on this.

    1. Thank you for this list. I worked for Cal OES and when there was a wildfire in California, the property owners of burnt houses could sign a waiver giving the state permission to clean up the property or the property owners would have to pay to have the property cleaned up within a certain time period. There are toxic waste concerns but nothing big. Just household chemicals that may have been on the property when it was destroyed.

    2. @Earth Mama I don’t know the name of the group but I do know they’re supposed to give whatever they find to the survivors. The very fact that the survivors are being blocked out because “of toxic waste” is utterly preposterous. We’ve had wildfires and fires in cities and the EPA has never, ever NOT ONCE shut down an area like this. NOT ONCE!!!!!

  5. Thank you, Samantha, so much for what you are doing for the precious survivors of the Lahaina fire disaster. Informing the world of truth is what we all need, and the Lord is with you and He is not letting ‘this one’ get quietly swept under the rug of the elite’s lying press.May the Lord bless you with increased favor, wisdom, strategy and supernatural protection. May He give you increased angelic help.

  6. Jesus, bless this lady and her family! Her humbleness is beautiful. When she says $1, $2, everything helps. She’s not like so many others, who automatically start by asking for $1000’s.

  7. This sweet lady only knows what they want her to know. This could and may start happening to other town’s here in the U S. These Illegal Border crossers are being treated like kings and Queens. While our own tax paying citizens are being treated like $# it.

    1. Yesss! And here we that want to help in the US can’t because we’re also struggling check by check while others coming in from other countries have the luxury to have a place to stay benefits and all. How is pathetic! I pray for all the families in Hawaii that are going thru this 🙏🏼

  8. Heartbreaking! I’m so glad you are there to help these beautiful people get their stories (THE TRUTH) out! May God be with you all❤

  9. Amen! The look on Iris’ face at the end of this video brought tears of joy to my eyes! She said the prayer of salvation, and you could literally see the weight lifted off of her. I will be praying for her and her family. Thank you for doing what you do Samantha. Thank you for listening to God and letting him lead you. You are an inspiration

    1. She said she had been praying already. I think one must be delicate and careful not to insinuate these people don’t have faith. The prayer was very touching, but I then was taken back by having her repeat the newbie words. Now the link to donate won’t work and I fwel unsettled she won’t benefit monetarily from the video 😔

  10. I’m glad you came back around to talk about the children, because at the beginning you asked the question about the missing children but then you just talked over her and never let her answer. Don’t try to feed them the answers that you want. Ask the questions and let them answer.

  11. Honestly to me that poor woman looks like she is in shock! Heart wrenching to hear her 🙏 She is so Blessed though that her life and her families lives were not ended. She is a sweet treasure and I’m so grateful you were able to interview her and share all of this with so many via this video. Mahalo for your kindness ♥️🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🌺🙏

  12. You made it to Maui! Thank you Samantha for recording and sharing the testimonies of the beautiful Lahaina’s. This work is sooo important. God bless to Iris and her family and all affected. My heart breaks for all. Let’s find hope with all the care and love from everyone. I live here in Louisville, Colorado and in 12/30/21, we had an eerily similar fire here with Gail force winds, no emergency notification, and of course, blamed on the electric company, that burned down entire neighborhoods of 350 each, with a total of 1800 structures turned to ash. I can name so many of the people we raised our kids along side with over the past 19 years, my community friends and family that lost everything. Thank you for telling these people’s stories. My family is okay, but a little scarred emotionally from living in a place that looked like an atomic bomb went off here. It’s been a crazy nearly two years. The rebuild is slow but it’s definitely steady. Keep going and know the world is watching and cares deeply for everyone there.

    God bless Maui, I love you all ❤

  13. I’m from Louisiana and I haven’t known what to believe. Thank you for sharing the truth. I’m so sorry for what all of you have gone through and still are.
