Maui Tsunami Evacuation – Routes & Zones

In light of the few near-misses by Tsunami’s in Maui waters in the last decade or so, we’ve decided to find some maps and put them at your fingertips more easily. Below are evacuation zones for the island of Maui. Please move to higher ground in the event of a potential tsunami. Any roads that are shown to border flood zones are thought to be safe (but we won’t really know until one hits, so use extra caution.)  Below you will find individual Maui tsunami evacuation maps for each region of the island.

You can learn more about local Maui weatherMaui weather report, and Maui Tsunami History by visiting our other Maui pages.
