A long-term volcano hazard assessment report is a publication that summarizes the types and likelihood of future hazardous phenomena expected to occur at a specific volcano or volcanic region.

The report typically includes a summary of the specific hazards, their impact areas, and a map showing ground-hazard zones. Strong earthquakes in Hawaii have destroyed buildings, roads, bridges, and utilities.

Damage can be locally intensified by water-saturated soils that amplify earthquake ground motions. On steep slopes, intense shaking. On 4 Mayearly in the Kilauea volcanic eruption sequence, an M w earthquake ruptured the south flank of Hawaii Island.
