This map is made with State of Hawaii data, ESRI data, USGS data and the Pacific Disaster Center.
The Red evacuation layer for the State was digitized from 
Tsunami Evacuation Zone proof maps provided by the State of
Hawaii Civil Defense, and published in County Telephone
Directories by GTE in 1991. These maps were produced by the
Joint Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Research, at the
University of Hawaii, in cooperation with the State of Hawaii
Civil Defense System.
