Floods are one of the most common hazards in Hawai’i

  • Be prepared to evacuate and move immediately to higher ground. Do not wait for instructions to act.
  • Do not cross fast-flowing water in your vehicle or on foot – Turn around, do not drown!
  • Contact your property/casualty agent or broker about flood insurance, which is offered through the National Flood Insurance Program

Make a Plan

  • Plan escape routes – ensure all family members know where to go and how to get out
  • Meeting place – choose a physical location to meet if communication between family members is down
  • Family communication – identify a family member who lives out-of-state who everyone can notify when they are safe
