Hurricane Iniki (1992) struck the island of Kauaʻi on September 11 at peak intensity; it had winds of 145 mph and was a Category 4 hurricane. On the south coast some hotels took several years to be rebuilt. One hotel—the Coco Palms Resort famous for Elvis Presley's Blue Hawaii—never reopened after the hurricane. Electric companies restored only 20% of the island's power service within four weeks of Iniki, while other areas were without power for up to three months.
