Before and after satellite images show scale of ferocious Hawaii wildfires

Homes and businesses flattened, scorched boats in the harbor and leafless skeletons of charred trees.

These satellite images show the sheer scale of destruction and devastation the wildfire in Hawaii has caused.

At least 93 people have died and dozens are wounded.

Aerial video from coastal Lahaina also shows dozens of homes and businesses flattened, including on Front Street, a popular tourist spot.
