Hawaii Is Getting Ready For A Rare Hurricane To Hit

Tropical Storm Kilo is expected to strengthen throughout the coming week and could make landfall as a Category 2 hurricane by Thursday

Iniki hit Kaua'i as a Category 4. It formed as a tropical depression south of Hawaii but eventually curled into a strong hurricane before making landfall. It caused six deaths and $2 billion in damages. And Kilo is taking a very similar path as Iniki. 

And for such a popular tourist destination, preparation will be key. 

"We just never let our guard down. We're very prepared from a supplies standpoint," Katy Britzmann of the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa told KHNL

The storm is still hundreds of miles out from Hawaii, so there's a chance it could miss impacting the island.
