The most powerful hurricane in recorded Hawaiian history made landfall on the island of Kauai with 145 mph winds. Thirty-five-foot waves smeared thousands of tons worth of debris inland 800 feet. Kauai lost nearly 1,500 homes and another 5,000 were inflicted with heavy damage. Six people were killed.
