Planning & Preparing for Disaster

During hurricane season, June – November, having a disaster emergency response plan for yourself, as well as your family and pets, is important.

Many disasters like earthquakes, locally generated tsunamis, and others will leave you with very little time to react. Know what resources are available to you beforehand, and develop a plan to ensure that all of your family members know what to do and are accounted for.

Vog Information Dashboard

Vog is a term that refers to volcanic smog. It is the haze you may see in the air that is caused by a combination of weather, wind conditions and volcanic activity. Vog becomes thicker or lighter depending upon the amount of emissions from Kīlauea volcano, the direction and amount of wind, and other weather conditions.
