NOAA Maps Hawaii Tsunami Zones with Google Maps

The NOAA has created the nation's first Tsunami Evacuation Zone Google Maps mashup in the state of Hawaii. Map users can search by specific address or by island area to find out if they are living, working or playing in a tsunami zone. A Google Map will display red shaded areas along the coast to indicate areas where you should evacuate if a tsunami warning is announced. The service is available from the NOAA's Pacific Services Center, State of Hawaii website, and the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
