MIAMI -

On this date, even though an intense storm was located near Alaska on this date in 1968, its effect was felt as far south as Hawaii. Swells from the storm created high surf near Hilo, HI and swept rocks and seawater into some buildings at Onekahakaha Beach. At its highest point, water reached 150 feet above the high-tide mark.
