ATTENTION: O’ahu Island
The tsunami evacuation zone maps have been updated for O’ahu. These new maps were developed using updated scientific techniques and technology, and were produced in conjunction with County Public Safety Officials. The new tsunami evacuation zone maps for O`ahu can also be found on the Department of Emergency Management Website or the CCH Public GIS Ftp site, or in the 2011 Hawaiian Telcom Yellow Pages.

ATTENTION: Other Islands
These tsunami evacuation zone maps are identical to those located in the front section of your phone book. They are based on data from tsunamis that have hit Hawai’i in the past and represent the best information available at this time. The University of Hawai’i, under direction of State Civil Defense, is currently using the latest scientific techniques and technology to improve this information. Once this is complete, county governments will be able to update their tsunami evacuation zones, if necessary.

Kaua’i Civil Defense asks that where feasible, persons leaving the evacuation areas should proceed to at least the 100′ elevation contour/level shown on the map in red, so as not to cause traffic congestion in or near evacuation zones.
