A dedicated website to support long-term recovery from the 2018 Kīlauea eruption on the Big Island is now live.

It also provides interactive features such as submitting personal stories about the recovery and signing up for status updates.

Key features of the site include:

  • Programs and resources available to recovering residents
  • Recovery stories
  • Eruption and recovery multimedia
  • Recovery-related events calendar
  • Centralized information about recovery planning and implementation
  • Forms to submit feedback, events, and content to the recovery team

Users can sign up for automated updates so that when recovery events and stories are added
to the site, they will be informed immediately. In addition, recovery newsletters will be sent
occasionally to inform users of new information.
