A message from COUNTY OF HAWAII

This is a Civil Defense Message for Saturday, May 19 at 6:30 in the evening.

Active lava flows have caused brush fires to spread from the flow front toward Kamaili Road. Residents on Kamaili Road need to evacuate the area immediately.

County and state fire units are in the area, going door-to-door to make sure people are informed and check if they need assistance. Everyone needs to stay clear of this area.

The residents of Puna are going through a very difficult time.  We ask for your help and understanding.

We are on watch 24-hours a day for your safety.

This is your Hawai‘i County Civil Defense.
