A hurricane is declared by the National Weather Service when winds hit 74 mph or more. Hurricane Iniki, which struck Kauai on September 11, 1992, sustained winds of up to 160 mph, and was the costliest and most destructive hurricane to strike the State of Hawaii.
Hurricane season in Hawaii runs from June through November, but a hurricane can strike at any time. Typically, homeowner insurance policies do not cover hurricane damage.
Be prepared for hurricane season and protect your property from hurricane and flood damage.
