|Title: Weather Diary 7 August 1959|
Concept: Hurricanes in Hawaii.
Detail: There are many hurricanes in the eastern Pacific off the
coast of Mexico. The vast majority churn into oblivion, never to affect
land areas. Occasionally however, some will move north into southern
California or graze the Hawaiian Islands. In 1959 Hurricane Dot did more
than graze the Islands. It punished the Honolulu area with up to 9
inches of rain and 100 miles per hour winds causing $3 million in losses
to the sugar crop. Storms of this intensity can however only be expected once every several decades in Hawaii.
But in 1992, Hurricane Iniki punished Kaua'i, taking 6 lives and $2 billion in property losses.
