Hawaii Civil Defense makes it easy to report tsunami damage

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii residents now have a new way to report damages from the tsunami.

The Hawaii State Civil Defense has added a toll free weekend number for residents to report tsunami damage to their property, home or business.

The toll free number supplements the Aloha United Way's service number that can be reached on the weekdays.

Callers can leave reports by calling (855) 211-7456. The lines will be open Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Hawaii standard time. If the line is busy, callers can leave a message and a staff member will return the call.

During the weekdays, the Aloha United Way can be reached by dialing 211.
