Kohala Shelters and Facilities

Currently the local schools are designated as shelters but the Hawaii Civil Defense recommends that you ask an official (police officer or firefighter) during a disaster to get the most accurate information. For example, during the 2011 Tsunami evacuation, Mahukona and Kapaa Beach Park campers were re-located to King Kamehameha Park in Kapaau.
