LIHUE, Hawaii -

Kauai County has updated the island's tsunami evacuation zone maps. The new maps will replace those made in the 1990s.

The maps are based on the latest technology, including ocean-floor mapping by the University of Hawaii at Manoa.

The Kauai Civil Defense Agency collaborated with emergency responders and experts to develop the new map zones. The areas in red will indicate areas that should be evacuated when there is a tsunami threat.

Maps are available at from the Kauai Civil Defense Agency, the National Weather Service website, as well as in the latest edition of the Yellow Book in the disaster preparedness section.
