During the daily White House press briefing in Washington, D.C. on Monday, press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre spoke with FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell about the state of Maui, the Hawaiian island that was devastated (among others) by wildfires last week and left with 96 fatalities as a result.

After seeing the brutal aftermath of the blazes herself, Criswell — who called into the briefing from Hawaii — said the coming days and weeks “are going to be tough” for people across the U.S. state.

“We are going to be with the people of Hawaii, as I have committed to the governor every step of the way,” Criswell said.

"This is going to require every tool that we have in our toolbox. We are not going to be able to rely on all of the traditional programs that we do in the continental United States,” she added.

Jean-Pierre, on the other hand, said that U.S. President Joe Biden has been speaking with Hawaii Gov. Josh Green and other officials about how to provide displaced families with homes and aid, as well as long-term recovery efforts.
