September 13, 1992 | SUSAN ESSOYAN and JIM NEWTON, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES; Essoyan, a Times special correspondent, reported from Lihue, and Newton, a Times staff writer, reported from a flight over Kauai
The island of Kauai lay dazed and broken Saturday, trampled by the terrible tread of Hurricane Iniki, which flattened homes and resorts like yesterday's beer cans. The governor of Hawaii estimated damage at more than $1 billion. Power and phones were out. From the air, it appeared that one of every three structures was damaged or destroyed. The mayor of Kauai County said two people were killed. One death was reported on the island of Oahu.
