Kaua'i updated map of tsunamis evacuated zones
District officers said that Kaua'i Tzunami Emergency Map has been upgraded to replace the 90s map. Refreshed charts are derived from the latest technologies used by the University of Hawaii's bathymetric/oceanic soil map and computer-modelling at M?noa Cards are available on the county's website, www.kauai.gov/civildefense, the website of the National Weather Service, http://tsunami.csc.noaa.gov/map.html, and in the latest issue of the Yellow Book on EmergencyReduction.
The multidisciplinary Kaua'i Civil Defense Agency (KCDA) formed a dedicated staff, which included disaster relief officers, first aid workers and a number of key players and professionals. "`Our project began with sophisticated flood computer modelling of UH M?noa. This information was used to forecast where the waters would go if some of the most devastating Kaua'i tidal waves were to occur," said KCDA Manager Glenda Nogami-Streufert.
"Based on this, the new escape areas with built-in buffer systems were designed and borders defined by road, geographical characteristics and/or land borders where possible. It noted that the upgraded charts do not aim to indicate where the waters would be flooded in the case of a tidal wave; they only show the areas that should be evaluated in the case of a thacion.
While significant changes have been made in a number of areas of emergency response, none of these have an effect on the tariffs for the inhabitants of the area. "FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) has reassured us that updating the emergency management map will not have any effect on the FEMA coverage areas or the FIRMs," said Nogami-Streufert. The Mayor Bernard Carvalho, Jr. asks everyone to check the map update and exchange the information with their families and mates.
"Whilst the security and well-being of our nation is at the forefront of everything we do, catastrophe prevention starts with each and every one of us and their Ohana," said Mayor Carvalho. A number of other KCDA-administered activities are underway, such as the provision of tidal wave education material and community awareness-raising, tidal wave signs and siren armament.
