Summary
Abstract: Earthquakes pose a significant risk to an estimated 75 million Americans living
in 39 States. The Pacific Disaster Center strives to reduce disaster risk and
impacts on human lives and property. To fulfill this mission, PDC equips
authorities and communities with information resources to assist with the
formation of proactive disaster management and mitigation processes.

Working in close collaboration with the Hawaii State Civil Defense (HSCD) and
Hawaii State Earthquake Advisory Committee (HSEAC), PDC has developed the
Hawaii HAZUS Atlas (HHA). HHA is designed to provide a better understanding of
potential future earthquake scenarios and expected damage loss estimates for
Hawaii and Maui Counties.

HHA contains a range of historical and credible earthquake scenarios located in
and around the State of Hawaii. Using FEMA's loss estimation model, Hazards
U.S. (also known as HAZUS), HHA contains damage loss calculations for each
scenario as estimated by the HAZUS model. With HHA, communities can use HAZUS
results to assist in disaster planning before, during, and after a destructive
earthquake.
