Welcome to the TsunamiZone in Hawaii!

Each April is Tsunami Awareness Month in Hawaii! The 2024 theme is “#Get2HIGround #GetTsunamiREady” Join Hawaii residents by finding all the resources you need to learn, promote, and share Tsunami Awareness Month through HawaiiTsunami.org. Be sure to register your tsunami preparedness activities right here on TsunamiZone.org too.

Being right in the middle of the Pacific with earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, and other geological activity, tsunamis can affect us here in Hawaii from both local and distant sources. Get to Know Your Zone.

What will you do in your home, organization, or community for tsunami preparedness? Participating is a great way for your family or organization to "know your zone" if you live or work near the ocean (or may visit), and to learn what to do to be safe.

Ten years later, we remember the impacts on Hawaii from the 2011 Japan Earthquake’s tsunami.
