(BIVN) – Hawaiʻi County has launched a dedicated website in support of the ongoing recovery effort after the 2018 eruption of Kīlauea Volcano.
The website is now live at recovery.hawaiicounty.gov, and replaces the existing previous page found on the general Hawaiʻi County website. The recovery website will “provide a more robust resource”, officials say, and is part of a County-wide redesign of its online presence that is currently under way.
“We’re excited to give the community a more dynamic resource to access to accurate information about recovery,” said Recovery Manager and R&D Director Diane Ley in a media release issued on Wednesday. “This is going to be a long process and a two-way flow of communication will help foster continued collaboration.”
According to the County:
The new website is intended to provide timely and accurate information to stakeholders about the County’s and its community partners’ ongoing efforts to support recovery, as well as resources and information to build future resilience. It also provides interactive features such as submitting personal stories about the recovery and signing up for status updates.
The website features:
- 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 also sign up for automated updates, the County says.
County officials recently gave the Hawaiʻi County Council an update on the recovery effort.
