Tips for staying safe during a Kilauea volcano eruption:
Stay informed about the volcanic situation in your area. You can get information from local news sources, the HVO, or your local emergency management office.
Have a plan in place in case you need to evacuate. This plan should include a safe place to go, a way to get there, and a way to stay in touch with family and friends.
Be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice. This means having your bags packed and ready to go, and knowing where to meet your family and friends.
If you are told to evacuate, do so immediately. Do not wait until the last minute.
Do not drive through an ashfall area. The ash can make it difficult to see and drive safely.
If you are caught in an ashfall area, stay indoors and avoid breathing the ash. Cover your mouth and nose with a cloth if you must go outside.
Stay calm and do not panic. The most important thing is to stay safe.
