Written in the wake of Hurricane Iniki, Tales of the Tempests, The Hurricanes of Kauai is an insightful look at the numerous hurricanes and gales that have assaulted the island of Kauai.
Kauai has been pummeled by four powerful tempests in the past 50 years. Each successive hurricane has increased in intensity. These hurricanes have affected Kauai's economy, its people and the future of the island.
Tales of the Tempests is a gripping account of man's attempt to cope with dangerous natural phenomena.
Like a tapestry, colorful stories and island residents' oral narratives are balanced with information about hurricane formation and meteorology, detailed history of hurricanes in Hawaiian waters, and local and national defense agencies that deal with wind driven disasters.
