S5, E4: The Materials That Made The Lahaina Miracle House
When Hurricane Dora fanned the flames of a dangerous wildfire on the island of Maui, the world watched as the beautiful and historic town turned to ashes.
However, standing like a beacon of hope was a 100-year-old home that became known as the Lahaina Miracle House. It has become a source of fascination for some and an example for builders and homeowners everywhere - perhaps you can prepare for the unexpected.
Severe weather and wildfire preparedness has become a more important topic every year. And in light of recent disasters, we wanted to bring back a discussion from 2022 with Scott Connell, Chief Meteorologist at KSDK in St Louis. We discuss weather preparedness both from an immediate safety perspective and a materials perspective.
