Park earns Storm/Tsunami Ready designation

By Ken Hupp - 67AM KPUA News

Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park has received federal recognition for its efforts to protect visitors and staff from weather-related and natural hazards from shoreline to summit. Park officials worked closely with the National Weather Service (NWS) in Honolulu to meet standards set forth by the NWS StormReady/TsunamiReady program. The park’s coastal areas and Mauna Loa attract day visitors as well as campers and backpackers drawn to remote wilderness. The safety plan includes identifying tsunami
inundation zones and marking them; new signage along the coastline; and revised literature in coastal area shelters. For Mauna Loa, the park developed a road and trail closure system based on NWS forecast models.
