A Terrifying, Deadly Storm Struck Hawaii In 1992 And No One Saw It Coming
While the Hawaiian Islands may be immune to select natural disasters – including blizzards and tornadoes – we still battle threats of volcanic eruptions, tsunamis and hurricanes on a regular basis.

Hurricane Iniki, a category four hurricane, was the deadliest storm to ever hit the Hawaiian Islands.
