Hurricane Lane

August 15 to August 28

Hurricane Lane was the wettest tropical cyclone on record in Hawaii, with rainfall accumulations of 52.02 inches (1,321 mm), also ranking as the second-wettest tropical cyclone in the United States, after Hurricane Harvey of 2017.

Hurricane Lane was only the second Category 5 hurricane to pass within 350 miles (560 km) of South Point, Hawaii. The other one was Hurricane John in 1994. Lane prompted the issuance of hurricane watches and warnings for every island in Hawaii.
