Media Release:

Community Enterprises resumes its 2014 Community Forums on Wednesday, October 15 at 6:30 and Thursday, October 16 at 6:00 pm at the Maka’eo Pavilion, Old Kona Airport State Park.

On Wednesday, October 15 at 6:30 pm there will be a special presentation “Earthquakes in Hawaii: What we all should know—and do.” The Island of Hawai‘i has a long history of destructive earthquakes, and some have severely impacted West Hawai‘i—most recently, the magnitude-6.7 and 6.0 earthquakes on October 15, 2006. But there are actions you can take to prevent or minimize personal injury during the next “big one.” Please join Hawaiian Volcano Observatory seismologist Wes Thelen as he presents an overview of damaging earthquakes in Hawaii, including current theories on where and why they occur and what you can do to keep you and your family safe when they do—and learn about the 2nd annual Great Hawaii ShakeOut, a statewide earthquake awareness and preparedness event. Wednesday, October 15, 6:00 p.m., Maka‘eo Pavilion Old Kona Airport State Park, Kailua-Kona.

On Thursday, October 16 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm, the community forum will focus on Hawaii County Real Property Taxation.
