The National Weather Service urges everyone in Hawaii to be prepared during hurricane season which runs from June 1 - November 30 every year.

In 1992, Hurricane Iniki was responsible for five deaths on Kauai and one death on Oahu. Unprecedented destruction of property occurred on the Garden Isle with an estimated $2.4 billion in damage.

On average, four or five tropical cyclones form or move into the Central Pacific each year. Now is the time to stock your disaster supply kit and review your family disaster plan. Do not wait until a tropical cyclone forms.
