Where can Maui residents find lava-flow hazard zone information?

For East Maui, which includes the active volcano Haleakalā (right), the most current lava-flow hazard zone map can be found in a 2006 paper by D.R. Sherrod and others, available online. The Lava-Flow Hazard Zone classification used for Maui is similar to that used to classify lava-flow hazards on Hawai‘i Island, but, because Haleakalā erupts far less frequently than either Mauna Loa or Kīlauea, the relative hazards on Maui are lower.

A lava-flow hazard zone map is not available or needed for West Maui.
