                                Travelers waited for their flights Wednesday at Kahului Airport on Maui as numerous wildfires stoked by gusts from Hurricane Dora and a high pressure system to the north ravaged the island. At the center was Olga Fong with her children, Alex, 9, and Nicholas, 3. The Fongs left Lahaina just before a wildfire gutted the historic town, but had to sleep overnight on the floor of the airport because their flight back to Los Angeles had been canceled.
