How do Maui lava-flow hazard zone numbers compare to those on Hawai‘i island?

The principal author of the 2006 paper by D.R. Sherrod and others, suggests that Maui Zone 1 is roughly equivalent to Hawai‘i Island Zone 3, Maui Zone 2 is roughly equivalent to Hawai‘i Island Zone 4, and Maui Zone 3 is roughly equivalent to Hawai‘i Island Zone 6. These comparisons are not explicitly stated in the paper, but Sherrod affirms how Maui lava-flow hazard zone numbers compare to Hawai‘i Island lava-flow hazard zone numbers, which were established by Mullineaux and others (1987). In other words, no place on Maui has volcanic hazards equivalent to Lava-Flow Hazard Zones 1 and 2 on Hawai‘i Island.
